    Rare 1872 Round Dollar BG-1208 Only Variety With Token Legend

    1872 $1 Indian Round 1 Dollar, BG-1208, Low R.6, MS62 PCGS. A suitably struck yellow-gold example with flashy semi-prooflike fields. A diagonal planchet crack (as made) from 10 to 5 o'clock nearly bisects the obverse, and causes a slight wave to the flan. BG-1208 is interesting for the word TOKEN in the legend, a futile attempt to overcome vigorous Federal opposition to privately issued coinage, which effectively ended Period Two production. Population: 5 in 62, 5 finer (8/05).(#10953) (NGC ID# 2C47, PCGS# 10953)
