1864 Quarter in Aluminum
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
