Lot Description
1872 25C Washington Round 25 Cents, BG-818, Low R.4, MS63 PCGS. Everyone knows the two basic types of California fractional gold coinage, the Liberty Head and the Indian Head. Less well known are a few additional designs, each very important within the series. Among these special designs are the Washington obverse 25 cent pieces and the Eagle reverse 50 cent pieces. This example is a splendid piece with light yellow color and hints of lilac toning. The surfaces are fully lustrous and slightly reflective. Although a number of finer quality examples are known, this piece presents a good opportunity combining quality and value.
