David Akers (1975/88): This date is even more rare than the 1851 and 1853 (and far more rare than the 1843, 1847, 1852 or 1861) making its "common date" status in some price guides misleading to say the least. The 1854, when available at all, is almost always just VF or EF. Strictly uncirculated examples and even accurately graded AU's are very rare. Choice or gem quality mint state pieces are virtually non-existent.
