1877 Twenty Cent, PR66 Cameo1877 20C PR66 Cameo NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The twenty cent series is one that was finished before it had scarcely begun, doomed to uselessness and commercial irrelevance, much like the Susan B. Anthony dollars a century later -- both were too easily confused with the quarter dollar. This PR66 Cameo example of the 1877 twenty cent piece is among the finest of the proof-only issues of 1877 and 1878 that would conclude the fated series. The 1877 saw a proof mintage of 510 pieces, but only 350 were actually distributed. A small circular area in the center of each side blends into deep purplish-blue fields and peripheries, with excellent field-device contrast and top-notch eye appeal. The strike is razor-sharp throughout. NGC has seen eight Cameo examples in PR66 with this piece the only Star-rated coin, and there are three PR67 Cameos finer (10/13).
