    1865 With Motto Quarter Pattern
    Judd-426, PR65 ★ Red Ultra Cameo

    1865 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-426, Pollock-498, R.6, PR65 ★ Red Ultra Cameo NGC. Ex: Garrett. 93.4 grains. From the regular obverse die of 1865, and paired with the reverse die from 1866 with the motto IN GOD WE TRUST added to a scroll above the eagle's head. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. According to USPatterns.com: "These and the other 'with motto' patterns of this date and also 1863 and are actually restrikes made circa 1869 and into the early 1870s and offered with restrikes of other denominations in complete sets." This is an absolutely amazing piece. The surfaces are completely red throughout and unmellowed by even a trace of browning. The fields are exceptionally deep in mirrored reflectivity and set up strong contrast against the thickly frosted devices. Heavily striated in the reverse fields.
    Ex: Garrett II (Bowers and Ruddy, 3/1980), lot 1029.
    From The Bob Simpson Collection. (NGC ID# 29JE, PCGS# 80611)
