    1870 Standard Silver Quarter in Silver
    Judd-913, PR63 Cameo

    1870 25C Standard Silver Quarter Dollar, Judd-913, Pollock-1009, Low R.7, PR63 Cameo NGC. 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 plain edge. These Standard Silver patterns were part of an experiment to see if coins of lower intrinsic value could be produced for circulation to encourage the redemption of fractional currency. This quarter pattern is mainly brilliant with blushes of gold patina and a couple of darker spots on the reverse. Wispy lines are also visible on that side. Field-device contrast is bold throughout.
    From The Collection of William Rau.
