Lot Description
1872 25C Washington Octagonal 25 Cents, BG-723, Low R.6, MS62 PCGS. This tiny coin was minted to serve as small change in post-Gold Rush California. Bright, pale yellow in color with just a hint of green, and unusually well-struck for a privately minted gold coin. Semi-prooflike, particularly on the reverse. In high demand due to the portrait of Washington.
