    1869 Quarter Eagle in Aluminum
    Judd-770, PR67 Deep Cameo

    1869 $2.50 Quarter Eagle, Judd-770, Pollock-855, Low R.7, PR67 Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Regular dies trial of the 1869 quarter eagle. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. There was probably no real need for an aluminum quarter eagle dies trial in 1869; USPatterns.com states: "these were actually deliberately struck for sale to collectors as part of complete sets." There are also examples known in copper and nickel (believed unique in that metal). Only a half dozen pieces are believed known in aluminum. As with many patterns struck in aluminum, this piece displays deeply mirrored fields with strongly contrasting, thickly frosted devices. Exceptionally attractive.
