    1869 Quarter Eagle in Copper
    Judd-769, PR65 Red and Brown

    1869 $2 1/2 Quarter Eagle, Judd-769, Pollock-854, R.7, PR65 Red and Brown PCGS.
    Ex: Simpson. Alleged to be a regular dies trial of the 1869 quarter eagle. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. There was probably no real need for an aluminum quarter eagle dies trial in 1869; states "these were actually deliberately struck for sale to collectors as part of complete sets." Off-metal coins were also struck in aluminum and nickel. Only a half dozen copper pieces are believed known. This piece displays especially rich coloration. The original mint luster has deepened to cherry-red, and instead of the traditional brown one would expect, that mellowing is now medium-density blue. Exceptionally attractive.
