Lot Description
1871 $1 Liberty Round 1 Dollar, BG-1201, High R.6, MS61 PCGS. A seldom-seen variety struck by Frontier & Co. Deep olive-gold patina envelops the fields, which contrast sharply against the yellow-gold devices. The surfaces show startling prooflike reflectivity, although PCGS has not designated this piece as such. Only a few microscopic hairlines keep this sharply struck piece from a higher grade. Housed in a green label PCGS holder. From The Hamous Collection of California Gold.
