No Date 25C BG-221 MS64 Certification #03733934, PCGS #10406
BG-221 is an undated Quarter Dollar issued during what is known as Period One (1852-1857) of the California Pioneer Fractional Gold. According to the Breen-Gillio reference, the firm of Antoine Louis Nouizillet coined this variety in 1853. This variety is considered scarce, but it is readily available in most grades up through MS64. A single example found on the wreck of the S.S. Central America was certified as MS62 by PCGS.
