Franklin DuPont Quarter Patterns
(1964) P25C Pattern Quarter Dollar. Pollock-5389, R.7

Indian Chief design, above, OHI--YESA. The reverse has a ship in full sail with the legend TREASURE ISLAND DOUBLOON. Apparently part of the DuPont testing for a suitable alloy, in this case silver bonded to a copper core and certainly similar to the "clad" Kennedy half dollars issued from 1965 to 1970.
