David Akers: This date is very rare in all grades. It has appeared at auction less often than any of the 1839 or 1840 coins and also less often than the 1841-C or 1841-D. However, it is not quite as rare in strictly uncirculated condition as any of the dates just mentioned since a small number of relatively choice examples exist.
