    1874 Quarter in Copper
    Judd-1359, PR64 Brown
    Ex: Lemus, One of Three Traced

    1874 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-1359, Pollock-1504, R.8, PR64 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse and reverse dies are from the same designs used on regular-issue coinage in 1874. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Judd-1359 is traditionally listed as a dies trial issue, but believes the coins were sold 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. Judd-1359 is extremely rare today, with fewer than three examples traced.

    As expected, the design elements throughout this proof quarter are sharply struck, with particularly fine detail on the eagle's feathers. The surfaces are toned a pleasing chocolate-brown. Minimal carbon and contact.
    Ex: D.E.A. and U.S. Marshals Services Sale (Heritage, 12/1988), lot 1897; Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 1843.
