Description

Deeply Reflective 1880 Twenty, AU58 Prooflike

1880 $20 AU58 Prooflike NGC. The 1880 has an impressively low mintage of only 51,400 pieces. Over the past 15 years or so a number of coins have been repatriated from European sources. Nevertheless, it is still a scarce date. Apparently only one pair of dies was used for the entire run of strikes for circulation, which would indicate this coin must have been one of the first struck before the mirror-like finish diminished with successive strikings. The fields are brightly prooflike on each side. Additionally, the strike is strong throughout. A number of small to medium-sized abrasions are scattered over each side, as one would expect. Census: 2 in 58 Prooflike, 0 finer (3/09). (NGC ID# 26BA, PCGS# 78992)
