Description:
Elegant 1865 Paquet Reverse
Silver Quarter, Judd-423, PR62
1865 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-423, Pollock-495, Low R.7, PR62 NGC.
Design.
The obverse is the regular Liberty Seated design for 1865. The reverse features a perched eagle with wings spread widely, clutching arrows with extremely long shafts. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is above, with the denomination fully spelled out below. Anthony Paquet designed the reverse, using the tall, thin letters often associated with his work. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

Commentary.
In addition to the present issue, the Paquet reverse was used on patterns dated 1858, 1859, and 1864. These pieces are believed to be restrikes, produced circa 1870, to satisfy demand from favored collectors. The first auction appearance of Judd-423 was in the famous Fewsmith Cabinet (Mason, 10/1870), lot 1325. The coin was purchased at that sale by Ebenezer Locke Mason, who had cataloged the coin himself. Mason paid $6.37 for his prize.

Physical Description.
The surfaces are suffused with beautiful russet toning, accented by violet highlights. The fields show scattered hairlines and contact marks, consistent with the grade. An attractive example of this famous pattern. NGC Census: 1 in PR62, 6 finer. PCGS Population: 1 in PR62, 5 finer (12/08).

Provenance.
Ex: Auction '87 (Paramount, 7/1987), lot 331.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two.
