    1872 Quarter Eagle in Aluminum
    Judd-1234, PR65 Deep Cameo

    1872 $2 1/2 Quarter Eagle, Judd-1234, Pollock-1376, R.8, PR65 Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Described as a regular dies trial strike; however, suggests these off-metal "trials" were deliberately produced for sale to collectors. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Examples were produced in aluminum and copper, and both are rare, with fewer than four of each confirmed to exist. This is only the second example we have handled since 1993. We sold the same PR63 in 2011 and again in 2014. As with most aluminum patterns, the fields are deeply reflective. Likewise, the devices display thick mint frost. In this case, both the mirrored fields and mint frost are extreme, which accounts for the Deep Cameo designation. Fully struck.
