Description:
1871 Indian Princess Quarter, Judd-1099, PR64
One of Four Known
1871 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-1099, Pollock-1235, High R.7, PR64 NGC.
Design.
The obverse is the Indian Princess design, with 13 stars ringing the rim and date 1871 in exergue, while the reverse is from the regular Seated Liberty quarter die of the year. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

Commentary.
Pollock notes that the Lemus Collection example shows regular coin-turn die alignment, while the Frossard-Garrett-Bass specimen shows 170-degree alignment. This is likely, but certainly not conclusive, evidence of more than one striking period. With Stars and No Stars set were produced in silver, aluminum, and copper. USPatterns.com estimates that only four pieces are known of this variety.

Physical Description.
The fields are nicely mirrored, and each side has lighter centers that deepen to a lovely golden around the margins. The devices are sharply defined throughout, there are a few tiny planchet voids on both obverse and reverse. A trace of a fingerprint is located in the upper left part of the obverse. NGC Census: one PR64 (including this piece), two PR65, one PR66 Cameo. PCGS Population: one PR60, one PR65 (11/08).

1. Gaston DiBello (Stack's, 5/1970), lot 346; Stack's (1/1987), lot 527. Die alignment 180 degrees. The present specimen.
