    1869 Standard Silver Quarter in Aluminum
    Judd-726, PR65 Cameo

    1869 25C Standard Silver Quarter Dollar, Judd-726, Pollock-807, High R.7, PR65 Cameo NGC. On the obverse a right-facing Liberty wears a Phrygian cap decorated with three stars at the front. A ribbon bearing the word LIBERTY flows from the base of the cap to Liberty's shoulder. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA borders the upper periphery, with IN GOD WE TRUST in a curved ribbon below. The reverse shows STANDARD SILVER around the upper edge, with 25 / CENTS in an open oak and laurel wreath. The date is at the lower rim. Struck on a plain-edged aluminum planchet. The number of Judd-726 Standard Silver quarter patterns struck is unknown, but the amount must have been small, as less than six pieces are believed extant today. Silver was the preferred metal for the many different Standard Silver patterns, with copper and aluminum pieces issued in much smaller quantities, based on their availability today. Reflective fields and cameo devices are the distinctive features of this well-struck piece. Unsurprisingly, considering the metal, the surfaces are essentially untoned, although we note a small spot below the O in OF on the obverse.
