    Description

    1872 Quarter Eagle, Judd-1231, Pollock-1373, R.7, PR 64 Red NGC. Ex: Pittman. William Barber's ''Amazonian'' design, featuring a figure of Liberty on the obverse facing left wearing a Phrygian cap inscribed LIBERTY. Thirteen stars surround it and the date is below. On the reverse, an eagle with spread wings holds three arrows in its right talon and supports a shield with the left. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is around and the denomination 2 1/2 DOL. is below. A scroll crossing the shield is inscribed IN GOD WE TRUST. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. A brilliant, fully red example with only the slightest hint of muting on the obverse. A few carbon flecks and tiny contact marks limit the grade on this exceedingly rare pattern.
