    1875 Twenty Cent Pattern in Nickel
    Judd-1410, PR66+ Cameo
    Finest at PCGS

    1875 20C Twenty Cents, Judd-1410, Pollock-1553, High R.7, PR66+ Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse die for this pattern is similar to the regular-issue twenty cent piece of 1875, save that the date appears in slightly smaller numerals and LIBERTY is incused rather than raised. The reverse shows an open wreath encircling 1/5 OF A DOLLAR with the issuing country and denomination around the periphery. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. The design was also struck in silver (Judd-1407), copper (Judd-1408), and aluminum (Judd-1409). has traced only four examples of Judd-1410, and one of those coins is impounded in the Mitchelson Collection at the Connecticut State Library.

    This Plus-graded Premium Gem proof is sharply detailed in most areas, with just a trace of softness in the centers. The impeccably preserved surfaces include deeply reflective fields that contrast boldly with the frosted devices. Both sides show low-intensity highlights of ice-blue and golden-tan toning. Eye appeal is terrific. This coin is pictured on PCGS CoinFacts. Population: 1 in 66 (1 in 66+) Cameo, 0 finer (1/21).
