    1875 Twenty Cent in Silver
    Judd-1407, PR65+ Cameo

    1875 20C Twenty Cents, Judd-1407, Pollock-1550, Low R.6, PR65+ Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Eliasberg-Simpson. The obverse is similar to the adopted die, although LIBERTY is incused rather than raised as on the regular-issue coins. The unadopted pattern reverse expresses the denomination twice, TWENTY CENTS and 1/5 OF A DOLLAR, indicating the Mint was wary of customers confusing these twenty cent pieces with their Seated quarter counterparts. The verbose legend forces a simple wreath motif, similar to that of the issued three cent nickel. Struck in silver with a plain edge. Probably a little more than a dozen examples are known, according to USPatterns.com. This Cameo-contrasted Gem is almost entirely brilliant, save for peripheral blushes of dusky violet-gray patina. Lovely all-original surfaces.
    Ex: Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection, Part I (Bowers and Merena, 5/1996), lot 212.
