David Akers (1975/88): Although not as rare as its counterpart in the Half Eagle series, the 1862-S is still a very rare coin in all grades. It is similar in rarity to the 1858-S, 1859-S and 1863-S and is just a little less rare than the 1860-S. Known specimens are all well worn with VF being the typical available grade. A small number of EF specimens are known but they are very rare. To the best of my knowledge, the 1862-S is unknown in uncirculated condition; at least I have not seen or heard of one. From the standpoint of condition rarity, this date ranks in the top ten coins in the entire Eagle series.
