1864 Pattern Quarter Dollar. Silver, reeded edge. NGC graded MS-64. Low Rarity 7. A brilliant Proof specimen with a hint of tone just starting to form around the borders. We note some very minor areas of unfinished polishing as made. The most notable feature of this rare Pattern is its reverse, designed by long-time assistant engraver and consultant to the mint Anthony C. Paquet. Paquet's eagle sports a fancy shield on its breast, one that is much curvier than on the regular issues. Paquet's signature tall narrows letters appear in the legends: UNITED STATES OF AMERICAN and QUARTER DOLLAR. Finally, the arrows are extremely long and overlap the right wing rather than pass below it as on the regular pieces, another innovation. Pop 1; 3 finer in 65 (PCGS # 60555) .
Estimated Value $3,000 - 3,500.
