    1875 Quarter Eagle in Copper
    Judd-1434, PR64 Brown

    1875 $2 1/2 Quarter Eagle, Judd-1434, Pollock-1577, High R.7, PR64 Brown PCGS. Regular dies Coronet quarter eagle from 1875. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Only four or five pieces are believed extant and a couple are gilt (for obvious reasons). There could be no legitimate reason to strike a quarter eagle in copper, so the inescapable conclusion is these were produced for sale to collectors. Another two or three pieces were struck in aluminum. This is a non-gilt piece, and while labeled Brown by PCGS, there is a surprising presence of original, yellow-red luster (although admittedly it is subdued). The fields are still brightly mirrored and this coin is fully struck. Housed in an old green label PCGS holder.
