    (Circa 1840) Seated Quarter Die Trial, Judd-A1840-7, Unique, MS64 NGC. An undated uniface obverse hub trial of the With Drapery Seated quarter. Struck in white metal with a plain edge. Believed to be made by Robert Ball Hughes circa 1840. Stars are present, but not the date. The design is reversed, consistent with a hub trial. notes, "there is also the possibility that this piece is part of the circa 1857-8 [Dr. J.T.] Barclay experiments." Well defined save for a few star centers. Believed unique.
