    1864 With Motto Quarter in Copper
    Judd-387, PR67 Red and Brown

    1864 25C Seated Quarter, Judd-387, Pollock-455, High R.6, PR67 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Bass-Simpson. Similar to the regular issue 1864 Seated quarter, but the motto IN GOD WE TRUST has been added on a scroll in the upper reverse field. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Formerly offered as lot 1123 in Part I of the Harry W. Bass, Jr. Collection, where it was described in part as, "A superb example, sharply struck, with deeply reflective Proof surfaces. Lovely pinkish orange is accented by bright blue, especially on the reverse. Approximately a dozen copper strikes are known today. Although there are some differences (probably due to die lapping), it appears that this piece and the 1864 Paquet Reverse quarter (Judd-384) are both products of the same obverse die.
    Ex: Robert Branigan Estate (Bowers and Merena, 8/1978), lot 1798; Harry W. Bass, Jr. (Bowers and Merena, 5/1999), lot 1123; Atlanta Signature (Heritage, 8/2001), lot 8335; Jones Beach Collection / FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2007), lot 1309.
