Description:
Finest Known Proof 1875 Twenty Cent Piece With Cameo Surfaces
1875 20C PR67 Cameo NGC. The popularity of this issue is immense, being that it is the premier date in the proof Twenty Cent series. The 1875 is also a prime type candidate with the highest proof mintage (2,790 pieces) of the type. Not all of these coins appear to have been released, however, with Breen (1977) noting that 590 specimens were still in mint holdings on January 1, 1876. The fate of these coins is not known with certainty, but melting on the authority of Mint officials is a likely result. Breen also reports only one die marriage among survivors, this being most readily identifiable by the presence of random arcing striations in the obverse field around Liberty's head. While the currently offered Superb Gem displays these features, its surfaces are silent on the subject of post-production distractions. A fully brilliant, snow-white appearance greets the viewer. Noticeable reflectivity in the fields permits appealing, mild cameo contrast to be appreciable on both obverse and reverse. Only four pieces have been graded at PR67, by NGC, with both the Cameo and "Star" designations, with none finer, and PCGS has yet to grade a single Cameo proof above PR66 (11/04).(#85303) (Registry values: N7079) (PCGS# 85303)
