    1805 Dickeson Quarter Mule, MS60 Brown
    Judd-C1805-1, Pollock-6105
    Possibly Unique

    1805 Private Restrike Quarter, Judd-C1805-1, Pollock-6105, Unique (?), MS60 Brown ANACS. The heavily rusted obverse die was previously used by the Mint to strike Browning-2 quarters and was probably bought as scrap. The reverse is Dickeson's recreation of Adam Eckfeldt's Eagle on Half Shield design, believed to be a rejected pattern die for a revenue stamp (ca. 1816). Struck in copper with a plain edge. Deep chocolate-brown color overall, the obverse shows heavy die rust and a rim break from 3 to 5 o'clock but the motifs remain largely clear. The reverse fields were crudely polished, leaving prominent striations, and there is a die break from the rim at 5 o'clock that extends inward for 3 mm. Housed in a small-sized holder
