Lot Description
1876 25C Indian Octagonal 25 Cents, BG-799E, High R.7, MS64 PCGS. This variety, which is attributed to jeweler Christopher (Christoph) Ferdinand Mohrig, was first discovered by Mr. Jay Roe in September 1981. Today, only three or four examples are known to exist, of which it is believed this one is second finest. It is brilliant yellow in color with a hint of green. The fields are deeply reflective with lustrous devices presented a bold cameo appearance. A few trivial hairlines are entirely insignificant.
