David Akers (1975/88): The 1926 is one of the most common issues of the series and is only marginally more rare than the 1925-D. In MS-64 or less, the 1926 is not at all difficult to find. Of course, true gems are very scarce but they can be located with a little effort. Above MS-65, there is relatively little available although I have seen a few outstanding quality pieces, including several nearly perfect ones.

Most examples of this date are very frosty and lustrous with a sharp strike. Color varies, with some specimens having a pale rose gold color and others having a rich greenish gold color. The "eye appeal" of the top grade specimens of this issue is among the best, if not the absolute best, in the series.
