    Description

    1870 Seated Quarter in Copper
    Judd-924, PR66+ Brown

    1870 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-924, Pollock-1029, High R.7, PR66+ Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Regular dies trial strike for the 1870 quarter. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. According to USPatterns.com, fewer than six Judd-924 representatives are known. This is certainly among the best. Formerly graded PR67 Brown by NGC, it now resides in a PR66+ Brown PCGS holder. One PR61 Brown PCGS, one PR65 PCGS, and one PR66 Red and Brown PCGS are also known (4/20). The total population may be limited to those four pieces. Rich, glossy surfaces reveal iridescent violet, magenta, and ice-blue patina. A flashy, eye-catching off-metal strike with unimprovable visual quality.
    Ex: Elite Coin Auction (Superior, 1/2003), lot 518.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 26VU, PCGS# 61168)
