David Akers (1975/88):

Although just slightly more common overall than the 1811 Tall 5, the auction data clearly shows that the 1811 Small 5 is much more common in uncirculated condition having appeared 36 times in mint state in my 337 catalogue survey compared to only 17 times for the Large 5. Each variety of the 1811 is more rare than the 1807, 1809/8, 1810 Large Date, Large 5 and 1812 and despite being more often available than the Large 5 variety, choice uncirculated examples of the 1811 Small 5 are harder to locate than either the mintage or most cataloguers would lead one to believe.
