David Akers (1975/88): With the exception of the extremely rare and unpublicized 1795 Nine Leaves Eagle, the 1798/7, 7x6 Stars Eagle is by far the rarest issue from 1795-1804. It is two to three times as rare as the 1798/7, 9x4 Stars, the 1797 Small Eagle or the 1804, and many more times rare than any of the others. Like most very rare coins, this isue has generally been overgraded and, in my experience, VF-EF is the typically seen grade. There are, however, several uncirculated examples known. It is interesting to note that this is the only early Eagle to rank in the top 50 issues of the series in rarity according to frequency of appearance at auction. (The 1795 Nine Leaves probably would have ranked at the top had it been listed seperately in auction catalogs.)
