    1870 Standard Silver Quarter in Copper
    Judd-878, PR68 Red and Brown

    1870 25C Standard Silver Quarter Dollar, Judd-878, Pollock-975, Low R.7, PR68 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The William Barber seated Liberty design with Liberty holding a pole topped by a Phrygian cap, an ancient symbol of liberty. Thirteen stars ring the obverse. The reverse features an agricultural wreath. STANDARD appears at top while 25 CENTS in two lines fills the wreath interior. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

    This is a simply immaculate coin of immense eye appeal. The strike is full throughout both sides, including all star centers and all high points of the bowknot, oak, cotton, and corn leaves, and the extensive drapery covering Liberty's rock. Gorgeous medium blue patina prevails on both sides, although generous daubs of fuchsia appear as a lagniappe on the reverse. This lovely coin is the sole finest numerically graded at PCGS regardless of color designation. NGC does report one PR68 Red and Brown Cameo example of the Judd-878 (8/20).
