1871 BG-720 Octagonal Quarter, MS66
1871 25C Liberty Octagonal 25 Cents, BG-720, R.7, MS66 NGC.
The rare BG-720 variety is notable for its oversized head of
Liberty and fragmented stars, which were partly lapped away during
the obverse die preparation. The reverse is the same as that used
on BG-717 before rusting. This is the finest example certified of
this Period Two quarter. The fields are nicely mirrored on each
side and circular lathe lines are seen on both obverse and reverse.
The green-gold surfaces are notably free from abrasions. (NGC ID# 2BMZ, PCGS# 10547)
A Period Two Rarity-7 Coin
