1870 Pattern Quarter Dollar. Silver, reeded edge. Judd-894. Pollock-1001, High rarity-5. PCGS graded Proof 64. A perfect match to the other Standard Silver pattern issues from the Benson collection, the toning is a medium steel gray with hints of blue through the periphery, and the color is quite even on both sides. Sharply struck by the dies, and nice for the grade. Examination will locate some trivial hairlines which probably kept this from a full gem grade, but they are old and toned over. Likely this one was stored in the Hollinbeck envelope since its purchase 55 or so years ago. PCGS has graded 12 as PR-64, with 7 graded higher (best PR-67) (PCGS # 61138) .
Estimated Value $1,300 - 1,500.
From the Benson collection and purchased from Hollinbeck Stamp & Coin Company's auction circa 1944-46 lot 1567.

Realized $1,323
