    1875 Sailor Head Twenty Cent in Silver
    Judd-1392, PR62

    1875 20C Sailor Head Twenty Cents, Judd-1392, Pollock-1535, R.6, PR62 PCGS. Designed by William Barber and nicknamed the Sailor Head design, it is nearly identical to the design of certain 1875 half eagle and eagle patterns. A coronet inscribed LIBERTY adorns a head of Liberty, her hair tied back with a ribbon. The reverse has a shield with 20 recessed and the word CENTS at the lower border. Arrows, leaves, and a glory of rays embellishes the shield with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around. Struck in silver with a plain edge. More than a dozen separate examples are known of this popular twenty cent pattern. Significant mint brilliance remains with an accent of light russet patina on each side. The grade is explained by a dark spot below Liberty's ear and several contact marks on the obverse.

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
