    1856 Octagonal Liberty Half, MS64
    BG-307, Bold Strike and Problem Free

    1856 50C Liberty Octagonal 50 Cents, BG-307, High R.5, MS64 PCGS. The very scarce to rare BG-307 is the only 1856 octagonal half variety with a beaded circle instead of a wreath. The denominator is double punched. The peripheral legend is partial, as made from excessive lapping. Issued by Frontier, Deviercy & Co., BG-307 is typically encountered with an indistinct strike or planchet issues, but the present near-Gem is nicely defined with unblemished apricot-gold surfaces. PCGS Population: (6/2 and 0/0+). NGC Census: (2/1 and 0/0+).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2BJE, PCGS# 10427)
