David Akers (1975/88): Typically, this date is flatly struck on the head of Liberty, even more so than on the issues of 1824 and 1825. Choice specimens of this date are extremely rare, and are, in my experience, less available than for any other date of this type. The stars on the 1827, like those on the 1826, are much larger than the stars on the first three years of this type.
