The Survival Estimate represents an average of one or more experts' opinions as to how many examples survive of a particular coin in three categories: 1) all grades, 2) 60 or better, and 3) 65 or better. These estimates are based on a variety of sources, including population reports, auction appearances, and personal knowledge. Survival estimates include coins that are raw, certified by PCGS, and certified by other grading services.
Numismatic Rarity converts the Survival Estimate for a particular coin into a number from 1 to 10 (with decimal increments) based on the PCGS Rarity Scale. The higher the number, the more rare the coin.

Relative Rarity By Type ranks the rarity of this coin with all other coins of this Type. Lower numbers indicate rarer coins.
Relative Rarity By Series
Relative Rarity By Series ranks the rarity of this coin with all other coins of this Series. Lower numbers indicate rarer coins.
David Akers (1975/88):
A very scarce date, although when available, invariably choice. This is the last really scarce Liberty Head quarter eagle, although the dates from 1896 to 1899 are also moderately scarce. Note: Gem specimens of any Liberty Head quarter eagle are uncommon and, although the dates from 1900 to 1907 are generally termed "common dates", only the 1907 has a mintage in excess of a quarter million pieces.
