    Description



    The following section of California gold is highlighted by the collection of the late William Mc Nally. Mr. Mc Nally was a "vest-pocket" dealer from Minnesota and was well known and respected in numismatic circles. As the following group of coins will testify, he had an eye for quality.
    This is one of the choicest offerings of uncertified California gold we have ever offered. Replete with many rarities, this grouping offers the collector a rare opportunity in today's marketplace: the chance to bid on truly fresh and rare California gold in an environment no longer hyped by promoters. Enjoy the sale!

    1853 Liberty Octagonal 25 Cents, BG-102, R.5, MS 63 Cracked Planchet, prooflike yellow-gold surfaces; 1854 Liberty Octagonal 25 Cents, BG-105, R.4, MS 63, easily distinguished by the five-star obverse; and an 1854 Liberty Octagonal 25 Cents, BG-108, R.5, AU 58, soft reddish-gold accents.
