David Akers (1975/88): This is a very scarce and generally underappreciated date. Its number of appearances at auction is lower than for many of the highly regarded dates in this series such as the 1848 CAL., the 1881, and the 1796 No Stars, to name just a few. As the auction records show, specimens better than EF are extremely rare.
