    1873 Closed 3 Quarter in Aluminum
    Judd-1271, PR66 Cameo

    1873 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-1271, Pollock-1413, R.8, PR66 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse and reverse design is the same as that used to coin regular-issue Closed 3, No Arrows 1873 quarter dollars. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. USPatterns.com reports two or three known examples of Judd-1271. The King Farouk and Major Lenox R. Lohr collections each contained an example, as did that of Harry X Boosel. We have handled a Judd-1271 representative on only one other occasion, the PR65 coin in our March 2010 Fort Worth Signature sale. That piece appears to match the Winthrop example listed in Pollock. Each side of this Premium Gem Cameo proof has the appearance of a typical aluminum pattern: brilliant, fully defined surfaces and profound field-device contrast. Terrific eye appeal for this off-metal quarter dollar rarity.
