    1870 Liberty Round Dollar, MS62
    BG-1202, Exceptional Toned Example
    Period Two Variety, Rare This Nice

    1870 $1 Liberty Round 1 Dollar, BG-1202, High R.5, MS62 NGC. A later Period Two piece, with the Nouizillet Liberty head, 13 five-pointed stars around, and the maker's mark G between stars 1 and 13 beneath the portrait. This is a Robert B. Gray & Co. issue, successor to Antoine Louis Nouizillet. The BG-1202 variety is confirmed by the date on the reverse of the coin. Further diagnostics include a recut R in DOLLAR and a vertical die crack from the edge through the bow knot, to the 7 in the date. Swirling die polish lines cover the prooflike surfaces on each side, with resultant deep iridescent toning from the alloyed gold and reddish-gold composition. Stunning magenta, cerulean-blue, and red-gold shades visit the margins surrounding rich, yellow-gold centers. Among the few finest known of the variety, with NGC listing just two examples led by a MS62 Prooflike. PCGS lists a single MS63 coin as its finest-certified (9/14). (NGC ID# 2C3Z, PCGS# 10947)
