Finest Known Judd-386
Finest Known Judd-386
Design. The obverse is a regular dies trial striking, while the reverse has the motto IN GOD WE TRUST above the eagle as adopted in 1866. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.
Commentary. The so-called transitional patterns of 1864, quarter (Judd-386), half dollar (Judd-391), and silver dollar (Judd-396), purportedly bridge the gap between the earlier No Motto coins and the Motto design officially adopted in 1866. According to USPatterns.com, the coins were actually produced for sale to collectors in sets, circa 1869. Approximately a dozen sets were struck in silver and another dozen in copper. Two or three sets were produced in aluminum and at least one in nickel. PCGS has graded a total of six examples of Judd-386 in lesser grades, and NGC has certified only two specimens, with the present coin being the finest known (3/13).
Physical Description. The design elements are sharply impressed on this exceptional Superb Gem, and the flawless surfaces are patinated in vivid shades of cobalt-blue and lavender-gray. The deeply mirrored fields shine through the toning with terrific eye appeal.
Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $30; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 60557)
