PR66 Brown, Tied for Finest Certified

1870 25C Standard Silver Quarter Dollar, Judd-896, Pollock-1003, Low R.7, PR66 Brown NGC.

The Liberty Head obverse, with no star on the tiara. IN GOD WE TRUST is on a scroll below the portrait. On the reverse an open agricultural wreath encloses 25 CENTS, date 1870 below. STANDARD is at the upper rim. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.
