1870 Standard Silver Quarter in Silver
1870 25C Standard Silver Quarter, Judd-876, Pollock-973, Low
R.7, PR65+ Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. William Barber's Liberty
seated on a draped pedestal, holding an olive branch in her left
hand, a shield and ribbon in her right hand. The ribbon is
inscribed LIBERTY and its forked end extends left of the shield,
resembling a fish tail. Thirteen stars around with the date below.
The reverse shows the denomination in the center, with a wreath of
cotton and corn around and STANDARD above. Struck in silver with a
reeded edge. The country of origin is not mentioned on either side,
a curious omission. USPatterns.com says about a dozen examples are
known. Vivid shades of magenta and sea-green toning enliven the
well-preserved surfaces of this Plus-graded Gem, with sharply
detailed design elements throughout. Population: 1 in 65 (1 in 65+)
Cameo, 0 finer (4/20).
