Lot 1854

1875. BG-1125, R-6. Octagonal Indian Gold Dollar. . BG-1125. PCGS graded MS-64. An important issue thought to have been coined by Herman J. Brand. The new obverse die (first use) was paired with an old reverse die, which has cracked and broken badly, especially at the top. Only a few were struck before the reverse die was discarded, and a new reverse die was paired with this obverse (BG-1126). Rich gold colors over the mirror fields, and well frosted. A few stray hairlines in the fields, but they are light and only visible at certain angles. All gold dollars are rare and always in strong demand. PCGS has graded 12 this high of the variety, and just a single coin higher (MS-65) of a total of 31 graded in all. A rare issue that will certainly attract considerable attention.
Estimated Value $1,000 - 1,500.

Realized $2,645
