    1858 Quarter in Silver
    Judd-221, PR66

    1858 P25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-221, Pollock-264, High R.7, PR66 PCGS. CAC Ex: Simpson. The obverse features the regular Seated Liberty design. The reverse exhibits the distinctive Anthony Paquet design with an oddly formed eagle holding an olive branch and three long, slender arrows. The denomination is spelled in full as QUARTER DOLLAR and the statutory legend appears above the eagle, both are in Paquet's unusual lettering style. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The first appearance for Judd-221 at public auction was lot C in Edward Cogan's sale from May 21, 1860 sale, where it was erroneously stated that only four were struck. Saul Teichman of USPatterns.com has traced five examples, including this one. The surfaces are mostly brilliant with heavily striated fields that provide a nice background for the moderately frosted devices. Undoubtedly one of the finest examples known of this rare pattern striking.
    Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/1998), lot 5033; Baltimore Signature (Heritage, 7/2003), lot 9935.
