Lot Description
1873 25C Indian Octagonal 25 Cents, BG-794, High R.5, MS64 PCGS. Ex: Bass. Unusually well struck, and the fields offer pleasing reflectivity. A faint mark is right of the fraction. The obverse die is apparently buckled near the date and final stars; not described as such in the Breen-Gillio second edition, but apparent from comparison with the Roe plate coin. Population: 14 in 64, 1 finer (12/05). Ex: Harry W. Bass, Jr. Collection, Part One (Bowers and Merena, 5/99), lot 2554; Bass purchased the piece from Isadore Herman on 11/73.
