    Judd-1408, PR64 Brown

    1875 20C Twenty Cent, Judd-1408, Pollock-1551, Low R.7, PR64 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is similar to the as-issued design, except the date is smaller and LIBERTY is incuse. The reverse features a wreath, and expresses the denomination with two different legends, TWENTY CENTS and 1/5 OF A DOLLAR. Struck in copper with a plain edge. Fewer than a dozen of these curious twenty cent patters are known in this metal. Other small numbers of this design exist in silver, aluminum, and nickel. Golden color adorns the coppery surfaces of this Choice proof, with accents of blue and magenta scattered throughout. A few faint signs of contact are well-hidden.
