David Akers (1975/88): The 1858-S is a very rare and underrated coin in any grade, as rare in fact as the highly publicized 1858. It is more rare than the 1855-S, 1856-S or 1857-S and similar in overall rarity to the equally underrated 1846. Most known specimens grade no better than VF and I have seen only a few that even reached the EF level. If an uncirculated example exists, I have not seen or heard of it. This date ranks in the top 10% of the entire $10 series in rarity according to frequency of appearance and it is just below the top 10% in rarity according to average grade.
