    1875 'Sailor Head' Twenty Cent Pattern
    Judd-1392, A Richly Toned Gem

    1875 20C Sailor Head Twenty Cents, Judd-1392, Pollock-1535, Low R.6, PR65 NGC. William Barber's "Sailor Head" design for Liberty dominates the obverse. The reverse has a shield that emphasizes the denomination with a large 20. Arrows, leaves, and a glory of rays ornament the shield. Struck in silver with a plain edge. The same design was also used on half eagle and eagle patterns in 1875. It is believed that more than a dozen examples are extant. This Gem has layers of blue, gray, and rose toning on each side that are backlit by the deeply reflective mirrors in the fields. A couple of minor contact marks on Liberty's chin and a lint mark between NT in CENTS on the reverse will help identify this coin in the future.
    From The Bob Simpson Collection. (NGC ID# 26WR, PCGS# 61699)
