    Description

    1871 Indian Princess/Standard Silver Quarter
    Judd-1096, Struck in Silver, Richly Toned PR67

    1871 25C Standard Silver Quarter Dollar, Judd-1096, Pollock-1097, R.7, PR67 NGC. CAC.
    Design.
    This Longacre Seated design features an Indian princess representing Liberty. Her left hand steadies a globe, while her right holds a Liberty pole with cap on top. Flags appear in the background. The Standard Silver reverse expresses the denomination and depicts a wreath of cotton and corn. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

    Commentary. This magnificent obverse design was created by James Longacre sometime prior to 1869 and put into coin (pattern) form by William Barber. These pieces were sold as complete sets from half dime to silver dollar. The only complete set that remains is in the Smithsonian. Until recently a complete set remained in the Eliasberg Collection, but it was broken up and sold individually. This design also exists in copper and aluminum. Two other pieces are pedigreed on the USPatterns.com website and a third piece is listed in the PCGS Population Report.

    Physical Description. Original gray-rose toning is seen in the centers and is surrounded by a wide margin of deep blue toning on each side. The toning is especially vibrant because of the depth of mirroring in the fields. Light die striations can be seen in the fields. The strike is full throughout; indicating die opposition was not a problem for this obverse/reverse combination. In spite of diligent searching, we have been unable to locate any flaws, Mint-made or otherwise, that would help pedigree this beautiful piece.
    From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (NGC ID# 2A3X, PCGS# 61355)

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
