David Akers (1975/88): The 1873-S is very rare in any condition and unknown in strictly uncirculated condition. There are two or three that could resonably be called AU. The 1873-S is comparable in overall rarity to the other S-Mint issues from 1866-1874 (except for the 1867-S which is a little more rare).
