    Description

    1871 Standard Silver Quarter, PR66
    Judd-1096, Struck in Silver
    Ex: Eliasberg-Simpson

    1871 25C Standard Silver Quarter, Judd-1096, Pollock-1232, Low R.7, PR66 PCGS. Ex: Eliasberg-Simpson. The Longacre Seated design (implemented by William Barber after Longacre's death) that features an Indian Princess on the obverse, hand resting on a globe, the other hand holds a Liberty pole with cap on top, and flags behind. The Standard Silver reverse has 25 CENTS as the central device, surrounded by a wreath of cotton and corn, and the word STANDARD at the top of that side. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. This Standard Silver quarter issue exists to the extent of about a dozen pieces. The present example must rank among the most impressive. It certainly carved out a place for itself in both the Eliasberg and Simpson collections. Golden-toned centers merge with blushes of ice-blue, violet, and sea-green around the borders of this flashy Premium Gem proof. Population: 3 in 66, 0 finer (4/20).
    Ex: Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection, Part I (Bowers and Merena, 5/1996), lot 228.
