Description:
1869 Standard Silver Quarter
Judd-734, High R.6, PR64
1869 25C Standard Silver Quarter Dollar, Judd-734, Pollock-815, High R.6, PR64 NGC.
Design.
Liberty, wearing a headband inscribed with LIBERTY in raised letters and a star at the front, faces right. A plain ribbon gracefully flows through Liberty's hair and across her shoulders. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is at the upper rim, with IN GOD WE TRUST in a ribbon below. The reverse features 25 / CENTS within an oak and laurel wreath, with STANDARD SILVER above and the date, 1869, below. Struck in silver with a plain edge.

Commentary.
Judd-733 through Judd-738 use the third obverse die mated with the usual Standard Silver reverse die. All of the three obverse dies used to strike these quarter patterns are similar. It is believed that the reason for the minor design changes was to simply create variety for collectors, which in turn generated revenue for the Mint and/or someone closely tied to its internal operations. Little official documentation is available regarding the Standard Silver patterns of 1869 and 1870, so we rely on contemporary accounts for research purposes.

Physical Description.
Well struck with crisp details throughout. Russet toning is evenly dispersed across both sides, with subtle hints of cobalt patination at the peripheries. "Pull-away" toning at the outer extremes of the obverse letters confirms the originality of the current offering. NGC Census: 2 in PR64, 5 finer. PCGS Population: 1 in PR64, 5 finer (12/08).

Provenance.
Ex: National Bank of Denver Sale (Bowers and Merena, 6/1987).
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two.
