1874/3. BG-1052, R-5. Round Indian Half Dollar. . BG-1052. PCGS graded MS-64. Deeply prooflike in the fields and boldly struck by the dies. This variety has the curious die scratch from the third star to Liberty's chin, where the engraver slipped and left a long mark on the obverse die. We also note a die crack from the rim through the fourth feather (counting from the top) nearly to Liberty's ear. The reverse die shows clash marks from the stars in the wreath. PCGS notes 8 graded this high, with a single coin graded higher, making this well up in the Condition Census for the variety.
Estimated Value $300 - 400.

Realized $529
