David Akers (1975/88): Although the 1802/1 appeared at auction four more times in our 226 catalogue survey than the 1807, in my opinion the 1807 is most common date of this date of this type. Of course, one might reasonably expect this from the significantly higher than average mintage of the 1807 which is more than twice that of any other heraldic eagle quarter eagle. Also, although once again the data does not clearly indicate this, the 1807 is the most available date of this type in high grade, and strictly uncircualted specimens do turn up from time to time. Well struck specimens of this date, though rare, are also more availabloe than any other date of this rare type.
