    1872 Amazonian Quarter in Copper
    Judd-1196, PR66 Red and Brown

    1872 25C Amazonian Quarter Dollar, Judd-1196, Pollock-1336, Low R.7, PR66 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. William Barber's Amazonian design with Liberty seated, facing left, her right hand touching the head of a spread-wing eagle, sword in left hand. Thirteen stars are on the upper portion of that side with the date below. The reverse has a reversed variant of the eagle seen on the obverse, denomination below and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around much of the perimeter on that side. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. According to USPatterns.com: "The Amazonian name dates to the 1890 New York Coin and Stamp auction of the Lorin G. Parmelee collection and was probably given by David Proskey."

    This design has always been considered one of the most beautiful and important patterns of the 19th century. Originally, the coins were offered as full sets, with examples of the quarter, half dollar, and dollar included. The lot referred to above in the Parmelee sale contained such a set. There are nine examples of Judd-1196 traced today. One of these coins is impounded in the Durham Western Heritage Museum, and another is in the Connecticut State Library. USPatterns.com has a detailed census of Judd-1196 on the website, which we encourage interest parties to visit.

    The present specimen retains much of its original red color, with highlights of gold and lavender. Crisp detail is present on all design elements, and there is a high degree of contrast with the reflective fields. Overall eye appeal is stunning. The present offering represents an opportunity that occurs infrequently, and advanced collectors should bid accordingly.
    Ex: River Oaks Collection (Bowers and Ruddy, 11/1976), lot 958; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 2041.
