1872. BG-818, R-5. Washington Head. Round Liberty Quarter Dollar. . BG-818. PCGS graded MS-65. One of the most popular designs of the entire series, the Washington head only occurs on a few die pairings by Frontier & Bellemere. On the round quarter eagles, it was only used on BG-818. Frosty gold luster on the devices, the fields are a bit reflective and toned with hazy gold accents. Breen speculates that these were struck for the Peace Jubilee Exposition. As to the strike, it is sharp on Washington, but there is some trivial weakness on the 4 of the denomination. PCGS has graded just 14 this high, with 2 graded higher, making this one of the around. An important opportunity for the specialist.
Estimated Value $1,000 - 1,500.
Purchased from Jay Roe in October 1990.

Realized $2,185
