    1882 Shield Earring Quarter in Silver
    Judd-1698, PR65 Cameo
    Ex: Parmelee-Jenks-Eliasberg

    1882 25C Shield Earring Quarter, Judd-1698, Pollock-1900, Low R.7, PR65 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Eliasberg-Simpson. The Shield Earring design of George T. Morgan. A youthful Liberty faces right wearing a band with the usual inscription, the band compressing the back portion of her hair. She wears a shield-shaped earring, with stars six left, seven right, date 1882 below. On the reverse a perched, defiant eagle occupies the center, clutching an olive branch and arrows. The reverse design is reminiscent of the Flying Eagle cent obverse and the Gobrecht dollar reverse, although the eagle faces right. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and QUARTER DOLLAR are the peripheral legends. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Only nine examples have been traced of this design in silver. The surfaces are mostly brilliant with just the slightest hint of color present. The deeply reflective fields establish the background for the white, frosted devices. Exceptional eye appeal.
