1874. BG-958, High R-6. Octagonal Indian Half Dollar. . BG-958. PCGS graded MS-64. This is one of the very rare backdated issues from an unknown maker, but possibly Herman J. Brand. All of these are rare and seldom encountered. Prooflike fields, and this is an early die state with stars six and seven touching feathers, and the wreath touching the D on the reverse. The reverse has some dark toning flecks through the center mostly on the devices but also in part of the fields surrounding. This may have been as struck. Here is one of the finest seen, PCGS notes just 5 graded this high, with 2 graded higher out of a total population they've seen of 13 coins.
Estimated Value $700 - 900.

Realized $1,150
