    1871 Quarter, Judd-1092, PR65 Cameo
    Indian Princess-Standard Silver Design
    Struck in Aluminum, Two Known

    1871 25C Standard Silver Quarter Dollar, Judd-1092, Pollock-1228, R.8, PR65 Cameo NGC. CAC. Ex: Bass/ANA Museum Display. Longacre's Indian Princess design, in a starless field with date 1871 in exergue, as reworked posthumously after his death by William Barber. On the reverse 25 / CENTS is centered within a wreath of corn and cotton. STANDARD appears at the upper rim. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. The extensive lineup of Standard Silver designs was sold in complete sets from half dime through dollar denominations. This piece is one of only two confirmed examples known of this issue, the other being the Stack's (5/1975)-Auction '86 (Paramount) example. This coin is also one of the few aluminum patterns we recall seeing with a Cameo designation (here quite well-deserved). The combination of a periphery on the obverse showing neither stars nor letters (the only text is the raised LIBERTY on the globe), a lack of toning, and the smallish date beneath Liberty's rock makes this pattern quite memorable, reminiscent in some ways of the 1837-1838 No Stars dimes, which show a similar "true cameo" effect. The surfaces on this piece are distraction-free with great contrast. A loupe reveals a few stray grayish flecks and the usual minor raised die lines and as-made small planchet defects typical of the unforgiving aluminum planchets, here on the reverse, through the last A in STANDARD. A beautiful coin and an exceedingly rare pattern issue. The Lemus-Queller Collection had "only" a silver example of this design, still quite rare but one of four known.
