Description:
1875 Twenty Cent Piece, PR66
Among the Finest Certified at NGC
1875 20C PR66 NGC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Like the Susan B. Anthony dollars of recent times, the twenty cent piece proved to be an unpopular denomination because the coins were difficult to distinguish from the contemporary quarters. The denomination was only coined from 1875 until 1878, with the last two years struck only in proof format. Of course, twenty cent pieces are prized by present-day collectors as type coins.

A generous proof mintage of 2,790 twenty cent pieces was achieved in 1875, when the Mint was still optimistic about the success of the coin. This delightful Premium Gem exhibits razor-sharp definition on the design elements and deeply mirrored fields on both sides. The well-preserved surfaces are patinated in vivid shades of champagne-gold and cerulean-blue, with no mentionable distractions. Overall eye appeal is terrific. Census: 17 in 66, 1 finer (10/13).
Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $8.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 27GZ, PCGS# 5303)
