Description

    Rare 1868 Indian Octagonal Fifty Cents, BG-960A, MS62

    1868 50C Indian Octagonal 50 Cents, BG-960A, High R.6, MS62 PCGS. A strong obverse strike highlights this rare Period Two piece. The reverse is lightly struck, which is unsurprising considering the die was reground after it struck the BG-960 pieces. Traces of CAL on the reverse remain visible under magnification. PCGS has graded a mere three specimens, while none have ever been certified at NGC. It may be years before another opportunity presents itself to add a Mint State example of this Breen-Gillio variety to one's collection. An MS61 example of this variety realized $8337.50 in a 2005 Heritage Exclusively Internet Auction. Population: 1 in 62, 2 finer (2/07). (NGC ID# 2BXZ, PCGS# 10829)
