David Akers (1975/88): The 1860 is similar in overall rarity to the 1840, 1841, both varieties of 1842 and the 1843 among earlier issues, and the 1851, 1854, 1857 and 1859 among later issues. This means, of course, that it is very rare in any condition. Known specimens are largely spread between the VF and EF grades although there are a small number of AU's and a very few uncirculated specimens known as well.
