    1865 Motto Seated Quarter in Copper
    Judd-426, PR66 Brown

    1865 25C Seated Quarter, Judd-426, Pollock-498, Low R.7, PR66 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. A transitional pattern with the IN GOD WE TRUST reverse of 1866, but dated 1865. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Although Judd-336 and Judd-387 are mules struck after 1866, Judd-426 was likely made in the year it is dated, since advanced collectors wrote to the Mint pursuing Motto patterns in December 1865. Additional pieces may have been contemporaneous with Judd-336 and Judd-387. This high-grade specimen is bathed in vibrant cobalt-blue toning. Glimpses of rich plum-red patina cling to the left obverse border. The sole imperfection is a tiny tan freckle below the right scroll end. Population: 1 in 66 Brown, 0 finer (9/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29JE, PCGS# 60611)
