    1875 Sailor Head Twenty Cent in Aluminum
    Judd-1394, PR66+ Cameo

    1875 20C Sailor Head Twenty Cents, Judd-1394, Pollock-1537, High R.7, PR66+ Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The popular Sailor Head design of William Barber, here on a pattern for a twenty cent piece. The reverse has a "spade-type" shield with 20 incuse, rays above the shield, two arrows, and an olive branch at the lower shield border. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA / CENTS encircles the rim. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. Only five or six examples of Judd-1394 are known, and this surely ranks among the finest. It is a magnificent piece of aluminum pattern coinage without traces of oxidation on either side. As often seen, the fields are deeply reflective and the devices show strong mint frost. Magnification reveals minor lateral planchet laminations, most notable on the reverse on each side of the bottom of the shield. However, these are extremely minor.
    Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2012), lot 5423.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
