    1874 Quarter Eagle, PR61 Red and Brown
    Judd-1367, Struck in Copper

    1874 $2 1/2 Quarter Eagle, Judd-1367, Pollock-1512, R.8, PR61 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The regular-issue quarter eagle dies for the year. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Two or three 1874 off-metal quarter eagles are known in copper, and a similar number are believed to exist in aluminum. Pollock reports two pieces in the 1954 King Farouk sale, although the absence of plates makes attribution impossible. One coin was plated in Bowers and Ruddy's sale of the Fairfield Collection (10/1977), lot 113, but it does not match this example. Abner Kreisberg offered another as part of the April 1967 10th Anniversary Sale, lot 1188, but no plates were provided. In all likelihood, this is one of the two Farouk coins, and it may be the Kreisberg sale example. Bright copper-orange surfaces show a few streaks of pale green and violet color near stars 3 and 4. A few die lumps are noted and the surfaces are slightly porous. Carbon flecks are minor.
