Lot Description
"1868" (1881-1883) Round 50 Cents. BG-1074. Rarity-6. Indian Head. MS-65 (PCGS). Finer than the Jay Roe specimen, this fully Gem-quality piece is the single highest-graded example of BG-1074 known to PCGS. It is a prooflike coin with reddish-orange reverse color that yields to lighter olive-khaki tinting on the obverse. A soft strike in the centers is characteristic of the type, although the reverse wreath is intricately detailed.
