    1875 Twenty Cent Die Trial, MS63
    Judd-A1875-1, Struck in White Metal

    1875 20C Twenty Cent, White Metal Reverse Die Trial, Judd-A1875-1, Pollock-3398, MS63 PCGS Secure. This uniface die trial shows UNITED STATES OF NORTH AMERICA across the upper obverse with the date below. No central device is present. Struck in white metal with a plain edge. This is one of two examples known. Saul Teichman, writing for, explains: "It is unclear if this [is] for an obverse or a reverse design or if it is really for a 20 cent piece. It is more likely a design for a medal or token of some sort." The pewter-gray obverse is partly lustrous, and the devices on that side are sharp. A small centering dot is apparent. The unstruck reverse is rough and porous.
