Lot Description
1873 25C Liberty Round 25 Cents, BG-817, R.3, MS67 S NGC. The single finest graded example of the variety, the sole MS67 at either service. The present lot is also the only BG-817 quarter to receive a Star designation from NGC, presumably because the obverse is clearly prooflike while the reverse reflectivity is muted slightly by a soft central strike. However, all examples of BG-817 have indistinct centers due to the high relief bust and the convex nature of the reverse die.
