    1857 Paquet-Designed Quarter in Copper
    Judd-188, PR64 Brown

    1857 P25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-188, Pollock-225, Low R.7, PR64 Brown PCGS. The obverse is the regular-issue Seated Liberty quarter from 1857, while the reverse is from an incomplete die that shows UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and QUAR. DOL. at the rim in a smaller font than on the regular issues, with the letter Q shaped much differently. The center of the reverse is blank. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Judd describes this pattern as the first work by Anthony Paquet. USPatterns.com speculates it may be a set-up piece for his quarter pattern from the following year, Judd-221. Known to have been struck in both thick and thin planchets, this appears to be a thin planchet example. Even brown patina covers each side of this problem-free early pattern.

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
