David Akers (1975/88):

The 1826 is certainly very rare as a date, but since most known examples are uncirculated, many of them gems, it is not nearly as rare in mint state as such dates as the 1821, 1824 and 1825/1. However, it is more rare in all grades, including Unc., than the 1813, 1814/3, 1818, 1820, and 1823. The number of existing specimens is probably on the order of 30-35 and there are also several proofs known.
