David Akers (1975/88): This is a great rarity, but for some unknown reason, it has not been afforded the respect it deserves. It is quite comparable in overall rarity to both the 1797 Small Eagle coins and is considerably more rare than the 1795 Heraldic Eagle, especially in choice condition. I would estimate that at most 12-15 specimens are known, the majority of those in VF-EF range. Paul Nuggett of Manfra, Tordella, and Brooks once had the choicest example I have ever seen. It was a borderline unc and quite likely was the Dunham specimen. As was the case with the 1795 Heraldic Eagle, it is probable that the 1797/5 was actually struck in 1798 and its mintage included in the total for that year.
