    1872 Quarter in Aluminum
    Judd-1199, PR67+ Deep Cameo

    1872 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-1199, Pollock-1339, High R.7, PR67+ Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse and reverse are the regular-issue dies for the date, struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. These coins have been called die trial pieces, but they were actually marketed to collectors as part of complete off-metal sets. One such set, struck in copper, was offered in the Woodside Collection in 1892. It consisted of a dollar, half dollar, quarter, dime, nickel, and three cent piece. Aluminum pieces are of the greatest rarity with only two or three examples known. This is an all-brilliant piece that exhibits deeply reflective fields and heavily frosted devices, thus the Deep Cameo designation.
