David Akers (1975/88): As one would suspect from the low mintage, the 1869 is very rare in any condition, roughly comparable to the 1864, 1865 and 1867 and marginally less rare than the 1863. It is more difficult to obtain than either the 1866 or 1868. The typical 1869 is VF-EF with a prooflike surface. The uncirculated Gilhousen piece, now in the Harry Bass Collection, is by far the best I have seen.
