Description

1882 Judd-1699 Quarter, PR66+ Brown
Morgan's Shield Earring Design
The Finest Certified Specimen

1882 25C Shield Earring Quarter Dollar, Judd-1699, Pollock-1901, High R.7, PR66+ Brown NGC. CAC.
Design.
The Shield Earring design of George T. Morgan features a youthful Liberty facing right wearing a band inscribed LIBERTY; the band compresses the back portion of her hair. She wears a shield-shaped earring, with stars six left and seven right, the date 1882 appearing below. On the reverse a perched, defiant eagle clutching an olive branch and arrows occupies the center. The reverse design is reminiscent of the Flying Eagle cent obverse and the Gobrecht dollar reverse, although the eagle faces right in this instance. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and QUARTER DOLLAR are the peripheral legends. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

Commentary. NGC has certified three submissions, including this piece, another graded PR66 Brown, and an example called PR65 Red and Brown. PCGS has graded just one example that they certified as PR65 Red and Brown. Saul Teichman records seven confirmed specimens at USPatterns.com. This popular design is represented on the cover of the 10th edition Judd book by an example of a Shield Earring dollar in silver.

Physical Description. The mirrored fields enjoy moderate depth of reflectivity around boldly defined devices with pristine surfaces that show splashes of orange mint luster over olive-brown patina. Violet overtones add to the aesthetic presentation of this Premium Gem.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 62105)

If my clients were to auction something of significance, having Mike as the auctioneer would be a deal maker as far as I am concerned.
