Lot Description
1876 25C Indian Octagonal 25 Cents, BG-799E, High R.7, MS64 PCGS. In September 1981 Jay Roe discovered this variety, which is attributed to jeweler Christopher (Christoph) Ferdinand Mohrig. The second edition of Breen-Gillio (2003) lists five survivors, one of which is unconfirmed. The present piece is honey-gold, and the fields are deeply reflective with lustrous devices and good cameo contrast. A few trivial hairlines are insignificant. Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2006), lot 4071, which realized $4,036.50.
