    Copper Striking of William Barber's "Sailor Head" Design

    1875 Twenty-Cents, Judd-1393, Pollock-1536, R.7, PR 63 Red and Brown PCGS. William Barber's so-called "Sailor Head" obverse design that shows Liberty facing left, wearing a coronet, her hair tied in the back with two ribbons trailing, thus resembling a sailor's cap. The reverse has a three-pointed shield as the central motif with 20 sunken in the middle, and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA/CENTS around the margins. Struck in copper with a plain edge. The original red luster has mellowed considerably over each side, but significant portions of red are still to be seen. A pleasing example of this lovely pattern design. (NGC ID# 2A4W, PCGS# 61393)
