David Akers (1975/88): Overall the 1875-S is comparable to the 1874-S in rarity but is less rare than the 1876-S that follows. The mintmark is very small but it is usually somewhat sharper than on other S Mint Half Eagles of the period. The bottom part of the ribbon above the eagle, especially below WE TRUST, is always weak or missing.
