    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.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 26WR, PCGS# 61699)
