David Akers (1975/88): The 1869 has one of the lowest mintages in the series and the date is just as rare as that low mintage implies. There are not all that many specimens known in any condition, but the typically available 1869 is EF or AU with proof-like or partially proof-like surfaces. I have not seen a strictly uncirculated 1869 and the Kern specimen is the only one ever catalogued as such (Editors note: as of 1980).
