    1875 'Sailor Head' Twenty Cent in Silver
    Judd-1392, PR66

    1875 20C Sailor Head Twenty Cents, Judd-1392, Pollock-1535, R.6, PR66 NGC. 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. This is a lovely, deeply mirrored specimen that is mostly rose colored on each side with emerald-green accents surrounding the devices.
    Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2007), lot 2749. (NGC ID# 6MA6, PCGS# 61699)
