David Akers (1975/88): In my opinion, the 1862 is the most underrated three dollar gold piece in choice uncirculated condition in the 1860's. The 1865 is more rare to be sure, but most collectors and dealers are well aware of its rarity. However, the 1862 has gone largely unnoticed, and in my experience the 1862 is much more rare in full mint state than the more highly regarded 1863. The diagonal field striations that are seen on many business strike 1861's are even more prominent on most regular issue 1862's.
