    Description

    1864 Quarter in Aluminum
    Judd-388, PR66 Cameo

    Only Two or Three Known

    1864 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-388, Pollock-456, R.8, PR66 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is the regular die for the 1864 Seated Liberty quarter, although the die does not appear to match any obverse dies that Larry Briggs describes in his variety reference to the Seated quarter series, and the reverse is the With Motto design that was introduced among regular-issue coins in 1866. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. This piece is the only Cameo proof of the Judd number that PCGS has certified (4/20). It is sharply defined with exceptional field-device contrast, a delightful Premium Gem Cameo proof. The light gray fields are fully and deeply mirrored behind frosty devices. A beautiful piece for the Seated Liberty quarter collector or the pattern specialist. The USPatterns.com website indicates that just two or three examples are known.
