    1871 Quarter 'Die Trial' in Copper
    Judd-1102, PR66 Red and Brown

    1871 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-1102, Pollock-1238, R.7, PR66 Red and Brown NGC.
    Design.
    Listed as a die trial, struck from the regular-issue Seated Liberty quarter dies of 1871, in copper with a reeded edge.

    Commentary.
    Rated R.7, this copper pattern probably has only five or six surviving pieces known today. USPatterns.com notes that "although these are described as regular die trial pieces in the standard references, it is more likely that the off-metal 'trials' of this year were deliberately struck for sale to collectors."

    Physical Description.
    The splendid surfaces on this pristine Premium Gem offer plenty of rose, lilac, and blue highlights with a good strike and loads of eye appeal. NGC and PCGS combined have certified seven examples, less duplicates. This is the only NGC PR66 Red and Brown, but NGC has also certified a PR67 Red and Brown and a PR67 Star Brown (11/08). The finest PCGS-certified Judd-1102 is a PR66 Red and Brown.

    Provenance.
    Ex: Stack's private treaty.
    From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two.
    (NGC ID# 2A44, PCGS# 71361)
