Description:

1875 'Sailor Head' Twenty Cent Pattern
Judd-1392, PR67+
1875 20C Sailor Head Twenty Cents, Judd-1392, Pollock-1535, R.6, PR67+ NGC. CAC.
Design.
Designed by William Barber and nicknamed the Sailor Head design. A coronet inscribed LIBERTY adorns a head of Liberty, her hair tied back with a ribbon. The reverse has a shield with 20 and the word CENTS at the lower border. Arrows, leaves, and a glory of rays embellish the shield with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around. Struck in silver with a plain edge.

Commentary. This "Sailor Head" design is nearly identical to that seen on certain 1875 half eagle and eagle patterns, dollar patterns from 1876, and some dimes, quarters, and half dollars from 1877. These popular twenty cent patterns were struck in silver, copper, aluminum, and nickel. Over a dozen pieces are believed known in silver.

Physical Description. Both grading services combined have certified a total of 28 examples of this pattern, a number that obviously contains a high number of resubmissions and crossovers. However, of those pieces known, this is the finest (3/13). Close examination of the surfaces of this pattern show why it deserves both the PR67 grade as well as the + endorsement: each side is virtually perfect. The margins are mostly deep blue, while the centers exhibit deep rose patina. All of the design elements are fully struck up on each side, and we do not see any abrasions of note.
