    1873 No Arrows Quarter in Copper
    Judd-1270, PR66 Red and Brown

    1873 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-1270, Pollock-1412, High R.7, PR66 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse and reverse design is the same as that used to coin regular issue Closed 3, No Arrows type 1873 quarter dollars. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. As often repeated in these descriptions, these pieces were formerly regarded as dies trial strikes; however, they were undoubtedly struck instead for sale to collectors as part of off-metal sets. Of the copper strikes, USPatterns.com estimates that four or five pieces are believed to exist, while only two or three pieces are known in aluminum. Just a smidgen of red still survives, mostly seen around the devices and within the recesses of the design on the obverse. Otherwise, each side displays rich, deep blue patina. A couple of minor strike-throughs can be found on each side, undoubtedly from a stray piece of wire, etc. that was struck into the piece. The most notable example is beneath the junction of the eagle's right (facing) wing. Exceptional color and overall preservation of surfaces.
