    Description

    1882 25C Indian Octagonal 25 Cents, BG-799CC, R.8, MS62 PCGS. Writing in 1983, Breen and Gillio described this variety as "possibly unique." To date, however, PCGS has certified 13 examples of BG-799CC (7/01). If one were to make due allowance for resubmissions, this is still a rare variety, the present example representing an important bidding opportunity for the dedicated collector of California Fractional Gold. Medium intensity honey-gold patina overlays both sides with tinges of deeper color around some of the devices and a few planchet streaks (as struck) on the reverse. This is a semi-prooflike coin with solid overall striking definition.
    From the David Bruce Collection. (NGC ID# 2BSJ, PCGS# 10655)
