1871 Octagonal 50 Cents. BG-911. Rarity-4. MS-67 (NGC). 1825/4/(2) Capped Bust Quarter. B-3. Rarity-3. Good-4 (PCGS). This is the finest graded and <strong><em>only</em></strong> MS-67 example seen between NGC and PCGS combined. Glittering brilliance from the combination of mirror fields and frosty devices commands the attention of any viewer. Once drawn in the surfaces are a delight as they are free of any significant or even insignificant handling. Rather well struck too, and a coin of the highest desirability.
