    1877 Twenty Cent Piece, PR66
    A Dramatic Deep Cameo

    1877 20C PR66 Deep Cameo PCGS. BF-1, R.3. In 1877, production of twenty cent pieces was restricted to 510 proofs, according to Mint records. Most survive, as the population reports show more than 600 grading events (obviously inflated). However, most lack or have little field-device contrast. Only seven Deep/Ultra Cameos are reported, with this Premium Gem tied for the finest at PCGS. The brilliant surfaces glimmer when rotated, producing a stark cameo effect at all angles. The strike is needle-sharp, and close study does not reveal any objectionable marks. Many proof twenty cent pieces are dull, unattractively toned, or otherwise unappealing. This remarkable coin restores one's faith in the possibility of completing a truly attractive date set of this underappreciated series. Population: 2 in 66 Deep Cameo, 0 finer (10/17).(Registry values: P1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 27H4, PCGS# 95305)

    Weight: 5.00 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
