    1859 Paquet-Designed Quarter
    Judd-234, PR65

    1859 P25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-234, Pollock-281, Low R.7, PR65 PCGS. The obverse features the regular design for the year; the reverse is a pattern design by Anthony Paquet. It features a perched eagle in a plain field surrounded with Paquet's distinctive tall letters on UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the denomination QUARTER DOLLAR below. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Fewer than a dozen examples are believed known of this pattern. The reverse was used in 1858, 1864, and 1865, as USPatterns.com points out. This brilliant, fully struck Gem example displays a number of striation marks in the fields, lending it an interesting texture.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29CD, PCGS# 11958)
