Description

Copper 1864 With Motto Quarter Pattern
Judd-387, PR67+ Red and Brown Cameo

1864 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-387, Pollock-455, R.7, PR67+ Red and Brown Cameo NGC. Similar to the regular issue 1864 Seated quarter, but the motto IN GOD WE TRUST has been added on a scroll in the upper reverse field. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. As stated in the description for the Bass example (2007 FUN Auction) although there are some differences (probably due to die lapping), it appears that this piece and the 1864 Paquet Reverse quarter (Judd-384) are both products of the same obverse die. While USPatterns.com states "about a dozen known" we have a hard time accounting for that many examples, and estimate that perhaps only eight or nine examples are known.
This is an extraordinarily attractive coin. The fields are deeply mirrored and establish both the sharp cameo effect and the brightness that lights up the deep red and blue surfaces. A slight planchet flaw to the lower part of the eagle's right (facing) wing serves as the only noticeable pedigree identifier.
From The Bob Simpson Collection. (NGC ID# 29HA, PCGS# 70558)
