    Rare Bailly-Designed 1874 Twenty Cent Pattern
    Judd-1358, PR65 Cameo

    1874 20C Twenty Cents, Judd-1358, Pollock-1503, High R.7, PR65 Cameo NGC. CAC. The obverse depicts a seated figure of Liberty facing left and holding a liberty pole in her right hand. Her left hand rests on a globe and she is surrounded by agricultural produce. The reverse exhibits the denomination 20 CENTS within a wreath with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the periphery. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. This is the scarcer of the two Bailly-designed twenty cent piece patterns from this year. It is estimated that only three or four individual pieces are extant today. This piece has bright, almost completely white surfaces with deeply mirrored fields and thickly frosted devices. Identifiable by a slight toning streak between obverse stars 9 and 10, and a light diagonal grease stain from the bottom of the O in OF.
    Ex: Crouch Collection (Superior, 6/1977), lot 366; Salisbury and Woods Collections (Bowers and Merena, 9/1994), lot 962. (NGC ID# 2AA3, PCGS# 61662)
