    Description

    1871 BG-718A Liberty Quarter Dollar, MS64+
    Finer of Two Known Specimens

    1871 25C Liberty Octagonal 25 Cents, BG-718A, R.8 MS64+ PCGS. The cataloger of the Jay Roe Collection that was sold in September 2003 noted that just two examples are known of BG-718A, a variety that was discovered by Rick Montgomery while grading coins at PCGS about 1990. The Roe specimen is MS64 PCGS and this piece is MS64+ PCGS. They are the only two PCGS certified examples with none graded at NGC. The two PCGS coins are apparently still the only two known of this important variety.
    The two known specimens are distinctly different die states. This piece has a perfect reverse die and the Roe coin has a heavy die crack outside the left branch of the wreath at about 9 o'clock. Both sides of this near-Gem have brilliant green-gold luster with reflective fields and frosty devices imparting light cameo contrast. (NGC ID# 2BMW, PCGS# 10545)
