    1875 Twenty Cent Pattern in Copper
    Judd-1408, PR55 Sharpness

    1875 20C Twenty Cents, Judd-1408, Pollock-1551, Low R.7 -- Corroded -- ANACS. Net PR55. 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. Examples were also struck in silver, aluminum, and nickel. The surfaces are beautifully toned in multicolored iridescence, but there is a spot of corrosion prominent toward the obverse rim at 3 o'clock.
