David Akers (1975/88): All dates of this short-lived type are very rare and the 1830 Small 5D is no exception. Most known specimens are in the EF to AU range and strictly uncirculated examples are very rare. The 1830 Small 5D is of approximately the same rarity overall as the 1831 (with both varieties combined) and the 1834 Motto, Plain 4, and is more rare than the 1833, the most common date of the type. I would estimate that perhaps 40-50 specimens are known.
