1867. BG-709, R-5. Octagonal Liberty Quarter Dollar. . BG-709. PCGS graded MS-64. As Jay Roe says, "This is the best made of the large Liberty Head types", and as Breen notes, "which isn't saying much" an interesting dialogue that has kept numismatics amusing. On this particular example, we note excellent contrast between the frosty devices and the mirror fields, and the coin boasts a delightful rich yellow gold color. As to the die execution, the stars are somewhat crude, and Liberty's head is a bit large and forbidding, with an athlete's neck to support her. Note the reverse die alignment is 180 degrees from a normal coin. PCGS has graded 16 this high, with 32 graded higher.
Estimated Value $200 - 250.

Realized $380
