    1863 With Motto Quarter in Silver
    Judd-335, PR66 Cameo

    1863 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-335, Pollock-407, High R.7, PR66 Cameo PCGS. The obverse die is from the Seated Liberty design used for regular-issue coinage in 1863. The reverse features the standard perched eagle motif with the addition of a scroll with the motto IN GOD WE TRUST inscribed. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. This rare issue was probably struck in the late 1860s or early 1870s to fill complete sets of transitional patterns. According to USPatterns.com, such sets were offered to select dealers and collectors circa 1869. Judd-335 was missing in Idler, Fewsmith, Linderman, Davis, Parmelee and many other great 19th century pattern collections, lending credence to claims about the issue's rarity. This is a deeply mirrored proof that has brilliant centers that are surrounded by golden and cobalt-blue marginal toning. Extraordinary quality and rarity combined in one coin. This is the finest at both services.
    Ex: Montgomery Collection (Bowers and Ruddy, 2/1976), lot 1679.
