Description

1865 Regular Dies Quarter Eagle in Copper
Judd-439, PR64 Red and Brown

1865 $2 1/2 Quarter Eagle, Judd-439, Pollock-512, R.7, PR64 Red and Brown NGC.
Design.
The regular dies for the proof quarter eagle struck in copper with a reeded edge.

Commentary. These pieces were undoubtedly struck for sale to collectors as part of off-metal gold proof sets, the larger denominations including the motto IN GOD WE TRUST. Copper patterns are known for each of the six gold denominations coined in 1865, including the 1865 Type Two double eagles.

Physical Description. Moderately mirrored fields surround the sharply defined design motifs on this piece, showing generous portions of light orange mint color in conjunction with pale blue-brown patina. Trivial planchet flakes and lint marks are noted on each side.

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 @ $40; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 70624)
