PR63 Cameo 1903 Twenty Dollar

1903 $20 PR63 Cameo NGC. Only 158 proof twenties were struck in 1903. All were allegedly of the non-contrast variety of proofing that came into vogue in the Mint in 1901. The cataloger of the Bass coin went so far as to state: " ... all authentic proofs do not have cameo frosted heads." This coin proves that statement to be not entirely correct. The devices, including the head of Liberty, show a slight but noticeable layer of mint frost. When set against the illimitable depth of mirrored reflectivity in the fields, a noticeable cameo effect is evident. Fewer than half of the mintage exists today as recognizable proofs, and less than a third of those have cameo contrast. This piece displays unfathomable depth of mirrored reflectivity with two-toned contrast on each side. Hairlined on the obverse, which explains the PR63 grade, but more attractive in overall eye appeal than the grade would infer. (Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 26ER, PCGS# 89119)
