Lot Description
1874 50C Indian Octagonal 50 Cents, BG-958, High R.6, MS66 NGC. A radiant and gorgeously preserved yellow-gold example of this rare California small denomination gold variety. Double-struck in the collar, and rotated a couple of degrees clockwise (relative to the obverse) between strikes. The effect of the double strike is particularly dramatic on the letters in DOLLAR. The dies were later polished to efface CAL, creating the BG-958A variety. Census: 1 in 66, 1 finer (3/08).
