    1871 Quarter, Struck in Aluminum
    Judd-1103, PR66+ Cameo

    1871 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-1103, Pollock-1239, High R.7, PR66+ Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Struck from the regular issue dies for 1871 quarter dollars. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. While these have traditionally been termed regular dies trial pieces, there really was no consideration given to striking quarters in aluminum in 1871. Rather, these were struck for collectors, and there are also variants in copper and nickel. Only two or three aluminum pieces are believed known. There are four or five copper examples, but only the Lohr coin is known in nickel. This is an all-brilliant aluminum strike that shows no traces of oxidation. Exceptional overall quality. Population: 1 in 66 (1 in 66+) Cameo, 0 finer (4/21).
