1872. BG-818, R-5. Washington Head. Round Liberty Quarter Dollar. . BG-818. PCGS graded MS-65. This rare Washington obverse was engraved by Frontier & Bellemere, likely for the Peace Jubilee Exposition. Few have been found in gem grades, but this is one of them! This particular coin is well struck, with the five pointed stars all full and complete including some that show recutting, and Washington himself is well executed, save for his eye which is a series of lines, and his ear is a lump. On the reverse, we note weakness at the centers, but all lettering and devices are present. Excellent gold color and well preserved throughout. PCGS has graded just 14 this high with 2 graded higher of this very important and popular Washington issue.
Estimated Value $1,000 - 1,500.
Purchased from Jay Roe privately in October 1989.

Realized $2,185
