    1860 Quarter Eagle in Copper
    Judd-270, PR64 Brown
    Curious Dual-Dated Pattern

    1860 P$21/2 Quarter Eagle, Judd-270, Pollock-318, R.7, PR64 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse depicts Liberty facing left, her hair flowing down to the shoulder, wearing a coronet inscribed LIBERTY, with 13 stars around and the date below. This Longacre obverse is dated 1857 and was used on Judd-189, reappearing on regular issue three cent nickel pieces in 1865. The 1860-dated reverse has the denomination, 2 ½ DOLLARS, and the date within a laurel wreath. The statutory legend is conspicuously absent. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Pleasing olive-brown surfaces exhibit blushes of blue, gold, and iridescent toning with a few trivial marks and spots that prevent a higher grade. A spot on Liberty's cheek identifies the provenance of this piece back to the Major Lenox Lohr pattern collection. Population: 3 in 64 Brown, 0 finer (1/21).
    Ex: Major Lenox Lohr; Bowers and Merena (6/1991), lot 1139.
