1863 Pattern Quarter Dollar. Copper, reeded edge. Judd-336. Pollock-408. NGC graded Proof 66 Red & Brown. Low Rarity 7. Wonderful bluish iridescent toning. This is an example in copper of the eventual With Motto reverse. Modern theory has it these were struck after the fact, after the date on the coin. A regular Proof obverse of 1863 is mated to the IN GOD WE TRUST reverse adopted in 1866-91 on the seated Liberty Quarters. Rare in all grades, but particularly enviable in this outstanding Proof 66 condition. The toning is breath-taking. Pop 1; none finer.
Estimated Value $4,000 - 5,000.

Realized $6,038
