    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.
    From The Collection of William Rau.
