1871 Indian Princess Quarter, Judd-1099, PR64
One of Four Known

1871 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-1099, Pollock-1235, High R.7, PR64 NGC.
The obverse is the Indian Princess design, with 13 stars ringing the rim and date 1871 in exergue, while the reverse is from the regular Seated Liberty quarter die of the year. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

Pollock notes that the Lemus Collection example shows regular coin-turn die alignment, while the Frossard-Garrett-Bass specimen shows 170-degree alignment. This is likely, but certainly not conclusive, evidence of more than one striking period. With Stars and No Stars set were produced in silver, aluminum, and copper. estimates that only four pieces are known of this variety.

Physical Description.
The fields are nicely mirrored, and each side has lighter centers that deepen to a lovely golden around the margins.

NGC Census: one PR64 (including this piece), two PR65, one PR66 Cameo. PCGS Population: one PR60, one PR65 (11/08).
