    1865 Paquet Reverse Quarter Dollar
    Judd-423, PR65+

    1865 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-423, Pollock-495, R.7, PR65+ NGC.
    Design.
    The obverse is the regular Liberty Seated design for 1865. The reverse features a perched eagle with wings spread widely, clutching arrows with extremely long shafts. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is above, with the denomination fully spelled out below. Anthony Paquet designed the reverse, using the tall, thin letters often associated with his work. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

    Commentary. This reverse design appeared on quarter patterns dated 1858, 1859, 1864, and 1865. Saul Teichman suggests that this pattern variety was produced circa 1868 and notes its first auction appearance was in October 1870. Fewer than a dozen silver examples are known, although NGC and PCGS have combined to certify 14 submissions.

    Physical Description. As expected, every intricate detail of this lovely Gem is boldly defined. The surfaces exhibit full mirrors and frosty devices, beneath outstanding deep violet-gray and cobalt-blue patina.

    Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $30; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
    From The Eric P. Newman Collection.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
