David Akers (1975/88): A look at the auction data from our 226 catalogue auction survey may surprise some people. There is only one auction record for this date in uncirculated condition, making the 1876 one of the rarest dates in the entire series in mint state. I have seen only one strictly uncirculated 1876, and that piece was softly struck, both on the obverse and reverse, much like many of the early S Mint quarter eagles. Most other business strikes I've seen, however, have been fairly well struck.
