    1871 Longacre Starless Quarter in Silver
    Judd-1093, Indian Princess Design, PR63
    Gold CAC Designation

    1871 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-1093, Pollock-1229, High R.7, PR63 PCGS. Gold CAC. Longacre's Indian Princess design, in a starless field with date 1871 in exergue, as reworked by William Barber posthumously after Longacre's death on January 1, 1869. The reverse is the regular die of the 1871 Seated quarter dollars. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. These pieces were sold as part of sets from half dime through the silver dollar. Approximately a half dozen are known in silver. A few pieces were also struck in copper and a couple in aluminum. This is a clean obverse design, one that is more suggestive of a medal than a coin. The fields are deeply reflective and the strike is complete throughout. A loupe reveals a few light hairlines, but their impact is so insignificant that the coin at first looks like there are none; thus, the Gold CAC sticker. Of more than 1800 patterns that have received CAC designation, only 14 have been awarded a Gold CAC sticker. (PCGS# 61352)
