    1873 Quarter Eagle in Gilt Copper
    Judd-1333, PR63 Gilt

    1873 $2 1/2 Quarter Eagle, Judd-1333, Pollock-1477, R.8, PR63 Gilt PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The regular Closed 3 quarter eagle dies for the year. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Reportedly, only three or four examples exist, according to USPatterns.com. We have been able to trace three pieces, the one in our September 2020 Simpson Sale, formerly from the Boosel and Bass collections, another coin that appeared in Bowers and Ruddy's March 1981 sale of the Roy Harte Collection (lot 658), and this piece -- apparently the only gilt example known. Also struck in aluminum with another three or four examples estimated extant. Unlike many gilt patterns, this piece retains significant reflectivity in the fields. Pinpoint strike details.
