1876 Quarter in Copper
1876 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-1455, Pollock-1604, R.8, PR64 Red
and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Struck from the regular quarter
dies in copper with a reeded edge. It is difficult to term these
pieces regular dies trial patterns. Rather, they appear to have
been off-metal pieces struck for sale to collectors. The patterns
and off-metal striking from 1876 are generally uncollectible. Many
are R.8 or unique. The most "common" 1876 pattern is Low R.7. Only
two examples of this off-metal striking are believed known.
Significant mint red remains over each side with a slightly
mellowed (brown) overlay. The strike is sharp throughout, and there
are only a few tiny specks of carbon present.
