    1869 Aluminum Quarter
    Judd-740, PR66+ Cameo

    1869 25C Seated Quarter, Judd-740, Pollock-821, High R.7, PR66+ Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The regular dies for the 1869 quarter dollar here are struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. These are not die trials as none were needed, but rather off-metal strikes that were traded to collectors in complete sets. About a half-dozen are known. This Premium Gem proof is well-mirrored and shows virtually no distractions. Many fine, parallel planchet striations are par for the course, and a tiny dark fleck near star 4 provides a handy pedigree marker, as does a squiggly lint mark rising from the top of 9 in the date. This is the single finest known at either service, by virtue of the Plus grade. Population: 1 in 66 (1 in 66+) Cameo, 0 finer (8/20).
