Ron Guth: Examples are known with New Reverses (see 1859, 1860, and 1861). Please notify us if you find one with an Old Reverse.
David Akers (1975/88): Once again, you can totally disregard the valuations for this coin in the standard pricing guides, particularly in uncirculated condition. Strictly uncircualted specimens are really very rare and this date is actually available more often in proof than it is in uncirculated condition.
