    1869 Standard Silver Quarter in Aluminum
    Judd-732, PR66 Cameo

    1869 P25C Standard Silver Quarter, Judd-732, Pollock-813, R.7, PR66 Cameo NGC.
    Design. Standard Silver design with Liberty wearing a diadem and a scroll with IN GOD WE TRUST below. The reverse reads STANDARD SILVER 1869 around the rim with 25 CENTS in the center of an oak and laurel wreath. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge.

    Commentary. The general Standard Silver series consists of countless pattern issues, most of which are rather common, although this aluminum variant is quite rare with only six to eight pieces known. NGC and PCGS have certified 10 submissions, with just two Cameo examples, both graded PR66 Cameo NGC.

    Physical Description. Crisp hair and leaf detail indicate the completeness of this pattern's strike. Both sides of this Premium Gem exhibit deeply mirrored fields and highly lustrous design motifs with brilliant gray surfaces consistent with the composition. The few dark flecks and trivial contact marks do not detract from the overall appearance of this coin.
    From The Eric P. Newman Collection.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
