David Akers (1975/88): The 1874 has the third highest mintage in the series and also the third highest number of appearances at auction in our 238 catalogue auction survey. By three dollar gold piece standards, the 1874 is definitely common and it is relatively obtainable in all grades, including choice uncircualted. Most uncirculated pieces that I have seen are frosty or only partially proof-like, but there are some that have full proof-like surfaces and they have been, on occasion, mistakenly offered as "proofs".
