1872. BG-722, R-4. Washington Head. Round Liberty Quarter Dollar. . BG-722. PCGS graded MS-65. One of the most popular of all designs of California Fractional Gold, the Washington obverse by Frontier & Bellemere was believed to have been struck from the Peace Jubilee Exposition. Washington remained an enormously popular figure in America then, as he remains today. Further, these coins boast excellent contrast between the frosty devices and the mirror fields, making them quite handsome to behold. The stars are sharply engraved in the die, and well struck here, as are the balance of the devices. We note a trace of a die crack through the tops of CAL. Sharply struck by the dies, and with hazy gold toning on both sides. On the PCGS insert the coin is identified as a BG-818, but it should be a BG-722.
Estimated Value $750 - 1,000.

Realized $2,185
