1873-1973 Canada Proof 25 Cents *rare Large Bust* For Sale
1973 25 Cents
A flashy proof. The rare large bust variety was struck with the 1972 obverse dies. It is believed that no more than 10,000 examples of the Large Bust variety were released in all methods of manufacture, compared to the approximately 135,000,000 small bust coins. The obverse has a bit of haze, and at 4:00 on the edge is an area that looks to be etched, but I'm unsure of the cause. The reverse is a nice cameo.Please note:
