David Akers (1975/88): The 1872 is one of my favorite dates in the gold dollar series. Except for the 1875, it is the scarcest date after 1870 and is really very rare in choice condition. Most of the available Uncs. that I have seen were not particularly choice (as contrasted to the Uncs. of 1870 and 1871 which are almost always choice or gem quality), and I have known many gold dollar collectors who experienced considerable difficulty when attempting to locate a top quality 1872.
