Lot Description
1871 50C Liberty Octagonal 50 Cents, BG-924, R.3, MS64 PCGS. This is an impressive and highly attractive green-gold example with splashes of lilac and iridescent toning. The surfaces are fully prooflike on both sides. Finer than the Jay Roe coin, plated in Breen-Gillio. The toning patterns are very similar on both coins, especially on the reverse, but these appear to be different examples. In fact, this is housed in an older green-label holder, discontinued before the Roe coins were certified.
