1872 California Fractional Gold Round Washington 25c
NGC MS 63
BG-818 is the sole round quarter Washington head variety, and as a California small denomination gold type coin, it is subject to strong collector demand.
A scarce Period Two round quarter dollar by Frontier & Bellemere, showing a Washington Head on the obverse instead of the usual Liberty portrait. This Choice example displays green-gold luster with peach and lilac accents. The distinctive and popular Washington Head variety is listed on page 401 of the 2016 Guide Book, and commands a hefty premium above the more commonly seen Liberty and Indian varieties. It is truly one of the more artistic California Fractional Gold examples to come out of San Francisco during the gold rush era.
