    1871 Indian Princess Quarter in Silver
    Judd-1099, PR66 Cameo
    Ex: Garrett-Bass

    1871 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-1099, Pollock-1235, High R.7, PR66 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Bass-Simpson. This design is correctly attributed to James B. Longacre, but was undoubtedly implemented by William Barber as Longacre died two years before. On the obverse, William Barber's Indian Princess is seated facing left with the date 1871 below, wearing a headdress and supporting a Liberty pole with her right hand, left hand resting on a globe inscribed LIBERTY, and behind her are two flags. The reverse features the same design used to coin regular issue quarter dollars. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Struck in silver, copper, and aluminum. Only five silver examples have been traced. This is a distinctive pattern whose obverse displays richly toned, speckled toning, while the reverse is almost completely cobalt-blue. Fully struck throughout.
