    1870 Standard Silver Quarter in Aluminum
    Judd-905, PR65

    1870 25C Standard Silver Quarter Dollar, Judd-905, Pollock-1021, High R.7, PR65 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. This Standard Silver design depicts a bust of Liberty facing right on the obverse. Liberty's cap is ornamented with three stars and a ribbon with the inscription LIBERTY, the motto IN GOD WE TRUST is on a scroll at the lower periphery. The reverse depicts the denomination within a wreath of oak and laurel with STANDARD SILVER above and the date below. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. This Standard Silver quarter would have been sold in a complete set of coins of this design for $15. Fewer than a half dozen Judd-905 representatives are known, and this appears to be the first we have handled dating back to at least 1993. Both sides are totally brilliant with frosty devices and a degree of reflectivity in the fields. A small spot on the tip of the flag of the 1 identifies this particular example, the finest at PCGS (10/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29XC, PCGS# 61149)
