Lot Description
1870 25C Liberty Octagonal 25 Cents, BG-759, R.4, Genuine PCGS (AU50 Environmental Damage). Ex: Jay Roe. The initial G is centered above the 7 in the date, the fraction has a diagonal shield bar, and no period follows CAL. A bold retained die break (as made) along the upper left obverse. This golden-brown example is close to Mint State in terms of sharpness, and the fields retain much reflectivity. However, the surfaces are moderately granular, perhaps due to environmental damage. Ex: Jay Roe Collection (Bowers and Merena, 9/2003), lot 204.
