Description

1869 Standard Silver Quarter
Judd-733, PR62

1869 25C Standard Silver Quarter Dollar, Judd-733, Pollock-814, R.5, PR62 NGC.
Design.
On the obverse a right-facing Liberty wears a headband displaying LIBERTY in raised letters and a single star at the front. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA borders the upper periphery, with IN GOD WE TRUST in a curved ribbon below. The reverse shows STANDARD SILVER around the upper edge, with 25 / CENTS in an open oak and laurel wreath. The date, 1869, is at the lower rim. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

Commentary.
Judd-733 through Judd-738 patterns represent the third and final Standard Silver obverse design, as described above. All three classes are similar in style and, as with the dime and half dollar patterns, the reeded edge silver pieces are more available than the others. However, none of the Standard Silver patterns are common in general terms, considering that not a single variety ranks below R.5 on the Sheldon rarity scale.

Physical Description.
A ring of cobalt toning at the obverse and reverse peripheries delicately frames lightly toned surfaces. We note a strong strike with the exception of slight weakness above Liberty's ear, as typical for the issue. A conservatively graded specimen that offers substantial eye appeal. NGC Census: 1 in PR62, 19 finer. PCGS Population: 10 in PR62, 26 finer (12/08).

Provenance.
Ex: Stack's private treaty transaction.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two.
(PCGS# 60960)

You gave me several alternatives and explained the pros and cons of each. I concluded that you were someone I could trust and that you would do a good job for me. And you sure did!
