David Akers (1975/88): This date is scarce in all grades and VF and EF examples are most often available. However, AU specimens and an occasional uncirculated one appear on the market fom time to time and a small number of choice and gem uncirculated specimens exist. The 1855 had more appearances in my auction survey than any other No Motto Eagle but I have seen more mint state examples of 1847 and 1847-O than I have of this date and consider them to be more common than 1855.
