    Description

    PCGS 1853 Liberty Head Octagonal Gold Dollar MS 62. BG-502, R.8. Listed by Breen-Gillio as being unique, but this piece is a second specimen which is nicer by far than the Breen-Gillio plate coin. This is also the first example graded by PCGS, not yet appearing in theirPopulation Report. Both sides are fully prooflike and display a bright, original, green-gold color. Light scratches above the eagle on the reverse. The reverse displays the copycat "Humbert" eagle, a cruder version of that seen on the much larger "Slugs." This is an incredible opportunity for the Cal Gold specialist to add this important variety to their collection. We are sure that this will be one of the most eagerly contested coins in this sale. Accompanied by a small, typewritten, kraft paper envelope, attributed by the consignor to Breen. (NGC ID# 2BKX, PCGS# 10479)
