    1870 Quarter, Struck in Nickel
    Judd-926, Unique, PR66 Cameo

    1870 25C Seated Quarter, Judd-926, Pollock-1031, Unique, PR66 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The regular Seated Liberty quarter design for the year. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. As with so many patterns struck in the 1860s and 1870s, while this piece was allegedly produced as a regular dies trial, there really was no need for a quarter struck in nickel, making this piece more than likely deliberately struck for collectors as part of a complete off-metal set. The "common" issue in this series is the copper issue with less than a half dozen pieces known. Two pieces are extant in aluminum, but this is the only example produced in nickel. Most of the original brightness of the nickel alloy is still apparent; however, a slight accent of reddish patina can be detected over each side. Sharply detailed throughout and problem free.
    Ex: Waldo Newcomer; Lenox Lohr.
