David Akers (1975/88): Definitely one of the rarer dates in the series after 1861, although not nearly as scarce as the higher mintage 1863. As one can tell from the average grade of AU-52 and the auction records, the 1865 generally is available in high grade. (The majority of specimens that I have seen have either been Unc. or proof.) The 1865 gold dollar was also restruck, probably sometime after 1872, Like the similar $3 gold piece (J-440), the date slants up to the right whereas on the original 1865, the date is low and level. Supposedly two examples of this restrike are known, although I am unaware of their present location.
