David Akers (1975/88)This is the lowest mintage quarter eagle after 1885. Despite the fact that there are 36 auction records in unc. for this date in our 226 catalog auction survey, I must admit that I have seen relatively few truly choice specimens. In fact, I have seen more choice proofs than I have choice uncirculated pieces. Most of the Uncs. that I have seen have not been choice at all. This is in contrast, for example, to the 1894 which has appeared at auction in Unc. only one more time than the 1892. Most of the 1894's I have seen have been extremely choice, while the majority of the 1892's have been "scruffy".
