    Extremely Rare 1874 Quarter Pattern
    Less Than Three Confirmed
    Judd-1359, PR64 Brown

    1874 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-1359, Pollock-1504, R.8, PR64 Brown NGC.
    Design.
    The obverse and reverse dies are from the same designs used on regular-issue coinage in 1874. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

    Commentary.
    Judd-1359 is traditionally listed as a dies trial issue, but USPatterns.com believes the coins were distributed by the Mint as part of complete off-metal sets. An example of such a set in copper was in the collection of King Farouk-Palace Collections of Egypt sale (Sotheby's, 2/1954), lot 1933. The issue is extremely rare today, with fewer than three examples traced.

    Physical Description.
    All design elements are sharply delineated, with particularly fine detail on the eagle's feathers. The surfaces are toned a pleasing chocolate-brown. The present example is the finest certified in the Brown category at both NGC and PCGS (11/08).

    Provenance.
    Ex: D.E.A. and U.S. Marshals Services Sale (Heritage, 12/1988), lot 1897.
    From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (NGC ID# 2AA4, PCGS# 61663)
