Estimated grade. Ex. Sawicki; Green; Woodin; Newcomer; Boyd; Memorable Sale (1948) Sold by David Akers Numsimatics, Oct '97.
David Akers (1975/88): A few proofs are known, including one in the Smithsonian Institution and one in the John J. Pittman collection. On the proofs of this year, the 1 in the date actually touches the denticles, whereas on the circulation strikes, the 1 is just barely free of the denticles. The proofs are weakly struck on the eagle's right leg, and this weak strike is also typical of the circulation strikes.
