    Magnificent William Barber-Designed 1870 Quarter
    Judd-883, PR63

    1870 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-883, Pollock-981, Low R.7, PR63 PCGS. CAC. William Barber's obverse depicts a seated figure of Liberty facing left, with 13 stars around and the date below. The reverse is the regular Seated Liberty quarter. Struck in silver with a plain edge. It is believed that fewer than a dozen examples are known of this variety. This piece has lots of flash and luster over the champagne-pink surfaces, and only a few insignificant hairlines and reverse planchet roughness apparently limit a finer grade.
