    1874 20C Twenty Cents, Judd-1358, Pollock-1503, High R.7, PR67 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. 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. J.A. Bailly produced two different designs for the twenty cent piece in 1874. The more available type features a reverse similar to that of the adopted design. This is the scarcer variant. About three or four are known in nickel. One is known in silver. This starkly contrasted nickel-gray Superb Gem features thickly frosted devices and flashy, reflective mirrors. A hint of golden color confirms its originality. Population: 1 in 67 Cameo, 0 finer (5/21).
