LOT DESCRIPTION 1875 Octagonal 50 Cents. BG-933. Rarity-5. Indian Head. MS-66 PL (NGC).
This is the popular Bed of Spikes variety, so named because of the long tooth-like denticles that surround the obverse. Both sides of this beautiful Condition Census Gem glow with bright yellow gold patina. The fields are deeply reflective and form a splendid backdrop to satiny, well contrasted devices. An exquisite piece, and a find for the advanced collector in the series.PCGS# 10791. NGC ID: 2BWZ. http://www.pcgscoinfacts.com/Coin/Detail/10791http://www.ngccoin.com/NGCCoinExplorer/CoinDetail.aspx?UCID=2BWZ
