Description

    1875 Round Indian Quarter, MS66
    Single Finest Certified BG-847
    Large Letters Variant

    1875 25C Indian Round 25 Cents, BG-847, R.4, MS66 NGC. The present lot is the only example of BG-847 to attain an MS66 grade at either NGC or PCGS. It is sharply struck with smooth, flashy apricot-gold surfaces and a minor strike-through on the reverse border near 9 o'clock. BG-847 has two important die states. The early die state (as depicted in the Breen-Gillio Jay Roe plate coin) has small letters in the reverse legend. The late die state (as seen on the present coin) has a large letters reverse (compare, for example, the A in CAL) and a crack from the rim at 2:30 through the wreath. It is the cataloger's opinion that the large letters variety merits a separate Breen-Gillio listing, i.e. BG-847A. (NGC ID# 2BUA, PCGS# 10708)
