    1875 'Liberty by the Seashore' Design
    Aluminum Twenty Cent Pattern
    Judd-1398, PR64

    1875 20C Twenty Cents, Judd-1398, Pollock-1541, High R.7, PR64 NGC. The popular "Liberty by the Seashore" design shows Liberty in the foreground with a Rigged Steamship in the background. The reverse is the popular 1/5 OF A DOLLAR design with that denomination in the center, surrounded by a laurel wreath, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA / TWENTY CENTS at the margin. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. USPatterns.com estimates that fewer than half a dozen aluminum examples are known of this popular design. This piece has an even, light haze over each side. The fields are still bright, though, and flash strongly in the fields. Several faint streaks of grease were struck into the coin at the time of manufacture, located near star 10, and there is a triangular planchet void on the obverse rim at star 11.
    From The Thompson Collection of US Patterns. (NGC ID# 2AB3, PCGS# 81704)
