    1873 Closed 3 Quarter Eagle in Copper
    Judd-1333, PR65 Brown
    Ex: Boosel-Bass

    1873 $2 1/2 Quarter Eagle, Judd-1333, Pollock-1477, R.8, PR65 Brown PCGS. 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 two pieces, this one from the Boosel and Bass collections, and another coin that appeared in Bowers and Ruddy's March 1981 sale of the Roy Harte Collection (lot 658). The Farouk example of Judd-1333 may be one of those two previously mentioned, or it may represent a third piece.

    A small dark spot at the juncture of Liberty's neck and bust identifies this particular Gem. Glossy surfaces feature beautiful shades of golden-brown, purple, and green patina. Expectedly fully struck. The Bass cataloger noted the weight as 37.2 grains.
