    1875 Twenty Cents in Copper
    Judd-1412, PR66 Red and Brown
    Magnificently Toned

    1875 20C Twenty Cents, Judd-1412, Pollock-1555, R.6-7, PR66 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. This variety is nearly identical to the regular issue twenty cent piece. The only differences are incuse letters on the obverse and different positions of leaves and arrows on the reverse. Probably 18 examples are known in three compositions: silver, copper, and aluminum. Pattern twenty cent pieces were made in 1874, 1875, and 1876. In 1874 there were six varieties from two different designs, and in 1876 regular issue pieces were coined in copper. The big year for patterns of this denomination was 1875 with seven designs and a total of 24 varieties. This coin's Red and Brown designation just begins to describe the multicolor shadings of color seen over each side. Underneath the proof mirrors greatly enhance and brighten the innumerable colors on display.
