1870 Pattern Standard Silver Quarter, Judd-888, R.5

1870 25C Standard Silver Quarter Dollar, Judd-888, Pollock-987, R.5, PR64 PCGS. A bust of Liberty wearing a cap ornamented with three stars facing right, the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA surrounds the figure, and a scroll with IN GOD WE TRUST is below. The reverse reads 25 CENTS 1870 in the center and is surrounded by a wreath of cotton and corn. This is fairly common Standard Silver pattern and is known on both thin 77 grain and thick 84 grain planchets. This appears to be a thin planchet variant, although we can't be certain because of the plastic encasement. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Close examination with a magnifier reveals a number of light hairlines and contact marks on each side that obviously account for the grade. However, these must have occurred long ago as the surfaces are deeply toned with gray and aqua-blue patination with a rose undertone. Population: 6 in 64, 5 finer (7/06). (NGC ID# 29WW, PCGS# 61132)
