Description:

'Sailor Head' 1877 Quarter, Judd-1500, PR63 Brown
A Rare and Underrated Pattern
1877 25C Sailor Head Quarter Dollar, Judd-1500, Pollock-1653, Low R.7, PR63 Brown PCGS. Designed by William Barber and nicknamed the Sailor Head design, it is nearly identical to the design of certain 1875 half eagle and eagle patterns. A coronet inscribed LIBERTY adorns a head of Liberty with hair tied back with a ribbon. The reverse is of the regular dies for the 1877 quarter. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. The Barber Sailor Head design is similar to that used on the twenty cent, half eagle, and eagle patterns of 1876. It was also used on the dime, half dollar, and dollar patterns in 1877. It is estimated by USPatterns.com that eight examples are known in copper, two of which have been silverplated. It appears to us that fewer pieces are actually known of the Judd-1500. This is the only piece we have a record of over the past 20 years. The last coin sold was in August, 1991. Saul Teichman has records of four pieces, all of which appeared in auction prior to 1991. Of special note, this pattern was missing from the Lemus Collection.
The surfaces are deeply mottled with olive, rose, and cobalt colors intermixed over each side. The striking details are complete. The only interruptions in the surfaces that could be used as a pedigree identifiers are a diagonal abrasion at the back of the eyebrow of Liberty and a partial circular planchet lamination in the lower right obverse field. (PCGS# 61835)
