David Akers (1975/88): Because of the great rarity and fame of the 1832 12 Stars, this 13 Stars variety has been touted as being a fantastic rarity in its own right. It certainly is a very rare coin but claims that only six or seven are known are highly inaccurate. I have personally seen more than that and I would estimate that at least 20-25 actually exist, if not more. Most known specimens are high grade, i.e. AU or Unc, but a  few EF's are around. As a date, the 1832 is more rare than the 1830, 1831, 1833 or 1834 of this type but the 1832 13 Stars is not as rare as the 1831 Small 5D variety, or as rare in Unc. as the 1830 Large 5D or either variety of 1834.
