    1872 Round Liberty Quarter, MS63
    Elusive BG-815 Variety

    1872 25C Liberty Round 25 Cents, BG-815, High R.7, MS63 PCGS Secure. The 1872 Liberty round 25 cent pieces, BG-815, were manufactured by the jewelry firm of Frontier & Bellemere of San Francisco and sold primarily as souvenirs. Like many other Period Two issues, BG-815 is rarely seen in today's market, probably because of mass government seizures carried out in the years 1881-1883, at the behest of Secret Service Chief James J. Brooks, who believed these pieces violated laws governing private coinage and counterfeiting.

    The present piece is an attractive Select specimen, with well-detailed design elements that show a little weakness on the denomination and some incomplete detail on the wreath. The lightly marked yellow-gold surfaces display prooflike reflectivity throughout. Population: 4 in 63, 2 finer (4/18).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2BT6, PCGS# 10676)
