Lot Description
1875 50C Indian Round 50 Cents, BG-1056, High R.4, MS66 Prooflike NGC. What a remarkable coin this is! One could examine many, many examples of California fractional gold without encountering such an impressive specimen again. Well struck with astonishingly deep prooflikeness in the fields, and lacking even the slightest post-striking anomaly on either side (although a couple of slender die cracks and several roller marks are noted on the reverse). The reverse was struck with counterclockwise die rotation of approximately 80 degrees, in relation the obverse. Census: 3 in 66 Prooflike, 0 finer (9/08).
