    Extremely Rare BG-758 1870 Liberty Octagonal Quarter

    1870 25C Liberty Octagonal 25 Cents, BG-758, R.8, MS64 PCGS. This is the only example of this very rare variety to ever cross the auction block at Heritage. Only five pieces are reflected in the PCGS Population Report, with none documented by NGC. Of the five PCGS examples, three are circulated and the current piece is the finest graded (3/08). For those collectors in pursuit of a high-end set of fractional gold pieces, the present coin could very well represent a once in a lifetime opportunity. This is a splendid, deeply prooflike example that has frosted devices which provide strong cameo contrast. A bit weakly struck. The reverse shows a distinguishing arc that appears to be some sort of striking imperfection which will easily identify this piece in the future. (NGC ID# 2BP9, PCGS# 10585)
