1870 William Barber Quarter in Silver
1870 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-882, Pollock-980, High R.7, PR66
Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. A William Barber design, the obverse
shows a figure of Liberty seated, facing left, her left hand
holding an olive branch, right hand resting on a shield. The
reverse is of the regular issue quarter design. Struck in silver
with a reeded edge. These handsomely designed patterns were sold in
sets by the Mint. This obverse / reverse pairing was also struck in
copper and aluminum, each metal with both a reeded edge and plain
edge variant. Each side retains much central brilliance with deeper
shades of golden-brown and occasional glimpses of blue around the
margins. Fully struck and problem-free.
