Description & Analysis

Judd-48, Pollock-49, High R.7.

This rarity pairs the obverse of 1827/3 with a reverse from 1819, Browning-2. The reverse has a square-base 2 in the denomination, which differs from the original 1827 quarters (which have a curl-base 2). Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

Little is known about the copper and silver strikings of this issue. Among the several theories about these pieces, the most convincing one to us is put forward by Saul Teichman and Andy Lustig on USPatterns.com:

"These were believed to have been struck along with most of their silver counterparts in the 1870s. The first occurrence for a copper example was in Haseltine's February 1877 sale. This sale also included a copper example of Judd-59 [1836 Gobrecht dollar in copper]. This is probably no accident!"

Undoubtedly, these pieces were struck to provide collectors of the day an example of this rare date. At the time of the Parmelee Sale in 1890 it was stated that "only 3 [were] struck." However, today five examples are known in copper, one impounded in the Connecticut State Library. All of the copper strikings show evidence on each side of die rust.
