Description

    Extremely Rare 1871 Quarter
    Die Trial in Aluminum, High R.7
    Judd-1103, PR65 Cameo

    1871 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-1103, Pollock-1239, High R.7, PR65 Cameo NGC.
    Design.
    Struck from the regular issue dies for 1871 quarter dollars, in aluminum with a reeded edge. From the Briggs 1-A dies: The obverse shows a small rust lump in the drapery just above and right of the Y in LIBERTY.

    Commentary.
    Only two or three pieces are currently known, according to USPatterns.com. Andrew Pollock recorded this piece with a weight of 28.2 grains. He also mentioned the Farouk coin and the 1971 ANA example in his census. It is possible that the present piece is the same as one of the other two.

    Physical Description.
    Wonderful mirrored fields surround cameo devices on this attractive light gray piece. Both sides are exceptional, with only a few tiny spots. The lower right obverse and upper right reverse borders are ill-defined, suggesting misalignment of the dies. The only certified examples at NGC are this PR65 Cameo and one PR66 Cameo finer, while PCGS has graded a single PR65 coin (11/08). Possible duplication exists.

    Provenance.
    Ex: Estates of Philip M. Mann, Jr. and Glenn B. Smedley (Bowers and Merena, 9/1988), lot 596.
    From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (PCGS# 61362)

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
