1872. BG-1208, High R-6. Round Indian Gold Dollar. . BG-1208. PCGS graded MS-63. One of the finest of this very rare issue, of which perhaps 20 are known (PCGS reports a total 15 graded). The fields are prooflike, and the strike bold in every way. Although research has yet to determine the maker of these, it may have been Herman J. Brand. One aspect that is extremely important is that this is the only issue in the series that declares itself a "token". Excellent gold color and abundant frost on the devices. Problem free surfaces, with few signs of handling and no problematic hairlines. PCGS has only graded 3 this high, with a single coin graded higher as MS-64. Don't miss this one if you are a specialist.
Estimated Value $4,000 - 5,000.
From Bowers and Merena's Virgil Brand sale, and Brand's inventory number 93,133, and from a later Bowers and Merena sale, unknown date, lot 1820.

Realized $6,038
