David Akers (1975/88): This is another of the many famous rarities of this type. However, contrary to the comments made by some cataloguers, it is less rare as a date than the 1815 with possibly 15-18 specimens known in all grades. Unlike the 1815, however, it is not the case with the 1819 that most known specimens are uncirculated as a number of the existing examples are in the VF to EF range. There are two major varieties of this date, one with "normal dies" and the other with the 5D over 50 reverse of 1818. The two varieties are of comparable rarity and neither would bring a premium over the other.
