Lot Description
1872 25C Liberty Round 25 Cents, BG-816, R.7, MS65 PCGS. Large crude head. While BG-814, BG-815, and BG-816 share the same obverse die, only BG-816 has 6 berries left and CAL close to the ribbon. The obverse is sharply struck, while the reverse has somewhat softly defined legends. Prooflike as usual with milky-tan patina. The fields have concentric lines, as struck due to lathe work on the dies. Seemingly pristine aside from a wispy slide mark or two. Perhaps the finest known example of this rare variety. Population: 1 in 65, 0 finer (3/02).
