1882 25C Shield Earring Quarter Dollar, Judd-1698, Pollock-1900, Low R.7, PR67 NGC. A youthful Liberty faces right wearing a band with the usual inscription, the band compressing the back portion of her hair. She wears a shield-shaped earring, with stars six left, seven right, date 1882 below. On the reverse a perched, defiant eagle occupies the center, clutching an olive branch and arrows. The reverse design is reminiscent of the Flying Eagle cent obverse and the Gobrecht dollar reverse, although the eagle faces right. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and QUARTER DOLLAR are the peripheral legends. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.
The end of the ATB series would have been the perfect opportunity to revisit some old but never used designs like this one. But here we are stuck with George Washington for the next ten thousand years.
