David Akers (1975/88): The mintage of the 1876-S is second lowest from the San Francisco Mint (tied with the 1860-S) and so it comes as no surprise that this date is very rare in any condition. However, it is not quite as rare as the With Motto S-Mint issues immediately preceding it and it compares more closely in overall rarity to the 1855-S and 1861-S. In terms of condition rarity, the 1876-S is near the top of the series, ranking in the top 10% of all $10 issues.
