    Description

    1882 Judd-1699 Quarter, PR66+ Brown
    Morgan's Shield Earring Design
    The Finest Certified Specimen

    1882 25C Shield Earring Quarter Dollar, Judd-1699, Pollock-1901, High R.7, PR66+ Brown NGC. CAC.
    Design.
    The Shield Earring design of George T. Morgan features a youthful Liberty facing right wearing a band inscribed LIBERTY; the band compresses the back portion of her hair. She wears a shield-shaped earring, with stars six left and seven right, the date 1882 appearing below. On the reverse a perched, defiant eagle clutching an olive branch and arrows occupies the center. The reverse design is reminiscent of the Flying Eagle cent obverse and the Gobrecht dollar reverse, although the eagle faces right in this instance. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and QUARTER DOLLAR are the peripheral legends. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

    Commentary. NGC has certified three submissions, including this piece, another graded PR66 Brown, and an example called PR65 Red and Brown. PCGS has graded just one example that they certified as PR65 Red and Brown. Saul Teichman records seven confirmed specimens at USPatterns.com. This popular design is represented on the cover of the 10th edition Judd book by an example of a Shield Earring dollar in silver.

    Physical Description. The mirrored fields enjoy moderate depth of reflectivity around boldly defined devices with pristine surfaces that show splashes of orange mint luster over olive-brown patina. Violet overtones add to the aesthetic presentation of this Premium Gem.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
