    1871 Indian Princess Quarter in Copper
    Judd-1100, Impeccable PR67+ Brown

    1871 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-1100, Pollock-1236, High R.7, PR67+ Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is the 1871 Indian Princess design of James B. Longacre as implemented by William Barber. Thirteen stars appear on the flag, and stars 1 and 13 around the rim are further from the central figure. The reverse is for the regular-issue quarter dollar. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. These coins were sold in complete sets from half dime to silver dollar by the Mint of the day.

    This simply gorgeous Superb Gem proof is numerically the finest certified at PCGS by two points, regardless of color designation. Stunning blue, rose, and heather tinges complement surfaces that exhibit immense eye appeal and no singular distractions. Although there may be close to a half-dozen or so survivors of this issue, the present coin is likely the finest of the bunch, and clearly far superior to either the Harry Bass or Rudy Sieck examples.
