    1857 Quarter, Struck in Copper
    Blank Center of the Reverse
    Judd-188, Glossy 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 plain 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 thick planchet example. The surfaces are glossy and reddish-brown and evenly matched from side to side. The reverse was double struck with an approximate 2-3% rotation between strikes.
