1853 Octagonal 25 Cents. BG-102. Rarity-4-. Liberty Head. MS-64 (PCGS). This fully original example possesses nicely reflective tendencies and pronounced green-gold luster with a hint of red color on the reverse. With the sole exception of the 8 in the reverse date, all devices are suitably bold, if not sharp in striking detail. This isolated lack of detail, however, is diagnostic of the present die state.
