1875 Twenty Cent Pattern in Nickel
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). USPatterns.com has traced
only four examples of Judd-1410, and one of those coins is
impounded in the Mitchelson Collection at the Connecticut State
Judd-1410, PR66+ Cameo
Finest at PCGS
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 (4/20).
