David Akers (1975/88): This is one of the rarest coins of this type. It appeared at auction as infrequently in all grades as the highly touted 1832 13 Stars and actually had fewer appearances in Unc than the 1832 13 Stars. It is more rare than the 1830 Small 5D, 1831 Large 5D, 1833 or 1834 Plain 4, and is of almost the same rarity as the 1830 Large 5D. Unlike some dates of this type which are often weakly struck on the eagle, the 1834 Crosslet 4 Half Eagles I have seen (the 1834 Plain 4 coins also) have almost always been well struck.
