Lot Description
1878/6 25C Indian Octagonal 25 Cents, BG-799E, High R.7 MS65 Prooflike NGC. Initially dated 1876, but the maker crudely modified the final date digit into an 8. The more available BG-799G shares the obverse die but has a different reverse. Very rare, PCGS and NGC have certified a total of only eight examples, which may include a few resubmissions. The present flashy honey-gold example is the single highest graded at NGC (11/09).
