    Description

    1872 Indian Round Dollar, BG-1208
    MS63 Prooflike

    1872 $1 Indian Round Dollar, BG-1208, Low R.6, MS63 Prooflike NGC. BG-1208 is famous as the sole Breen-Gillio variety with TOKEN in the legend, a futile attempt to deflect any Secret Service interest. Period Two effectively ended with the August 10, 1876 arrest of maker Christopher Ferdinand Mohrig. This is a flashy and boldly struck straw-gold example with moderate field hairlines and a few hair-thin marks. Census: 1 in 63 Prooflike, 1 finer (12/14).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2C47, Variety PCGS# 710953, Base PCGS# 10953)
