David Akers (1975/88): The 1862 is a rare date in any condition, only a little less rare than the 1857, 1859, and 1860 and more rare than the 1852, 1856 and 1861. Almost all known specimens grade only VF or EF and I have seen just one average quality uncirculated piece. A proof of this date is more likely to be encountered than a high grade business strike.
