Description

    Sensational 1870 Standard
    Silver Quarter, Judd-912
    PR67 Cameo, Finest Certified

    1870 25C Standard Silver Quarter Dollar, Judd-912, Pollock-1008, High R.6, PR67 Cameo NGC.
    Design.
    Standard Silver design, with the head of Liberty wearing a diadem and a ribbon inscribed LIBERTY in raised letters. The reverse reads STANDARD SILVER 1870 around the rim, with 25 / CENTS in the center of an oak and laurel wreath. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

    Commentary.
    Although the Standard Silver patterns struck in 1869 and 1870 are quite plentiful, consisting of many dozens of varieties among the various denominations, few can match the aesthetic desirability of the present piece.

    Physical Description.
    This bold Superb Gem is a sensational example with full cameo contrast, as noted by NGC. The surfaces are fully and deeply mirrored around sharply defined design motifs. Both sides display light champagne color with splashes of deeper gold and iridescent toning. NGC has graded 10 examples, with this piece and a single PR67 non-Cameo example numerically tied for the finest. PCGS has certified a half-dozen specimens, the finest a PR66 (11/08).

    Provenance.
    Ex: Stack's private treaty.
    From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (NGC ID# 29XK, PCGS# 61156)
