1873 Closed 3 Quarter in Aluminum
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.
