    Rare 1879 Washlady Quarter in Copper
    Judd-1591, PR64 Brown

    1879 25C Washlady Quarter Dollar, Judd-1591, Pollock-1784, Low R.7, PR64 Brown NGC. The Washlady design is attributed to Charles Barber, with Liberty's hair bound behind the head. The obverse has UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the border with the date below the bust. The reverse has an eagle clutching an olive branch and three arrows. The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA legend and E PLURIBUS UNUM motto follow inside the upper reverse border with the denomination expressed as QUAR. DOLLAR below. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.
    While not well received at the time of issue, the Washlady design has become one of the most popular and coveted pattern designs in any metal. Only 12 to 15 pieces are believed extant in copper. This piece is heavily patinated in brown, blue, and red mottled shadings, yet when held in the right light the mirrored fields jump to life.
    From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Three. (NGC ID# 2AGH, PCGS# 61968)
