    1875 Pattern Twenty Cent Piece Struck in Aluminum

    1875 Twenty Cents, Judd-1405, Pollock-1548, R.7, PR 66 PCGS. A figure of Liberty sits by the seashore with 13 stars surrounding and the date 1875 in the exergue below. She holds an olive branch with her right hand and rests her left hand on a globe inscribed LIBERTY. A steamship with sails can be seen to the left. An interesting footnote to the ship: the smoke trails behind the ship, but the sails are billowed in the forward direction. The reverse displays the denomination 20 CENTS within an olive wreath and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. Bright, silver-gray appearance with a few scattered carbon flecks at the borders and on the reverse. Essentially hairline-free. A rare gem example of this interesting pattern.
