    1875 Twenty Cent in Aluminum
    Judd-1415, PR65 Deep Cameo

    1875 20C Twenty Cents, Judd-1415, Pollock-1558, R.8, PR65 Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Struck from regular issue dies, but in aluminum with a plain edge. According to "Although described as a regular dies trial piece, these were actually deliberately struck for sale to collectors as part of complete off-metal sets." The more frequently seen variant is struck in copper, with an estimated half dozen pieces known. However, in aluminum the rarity profile changes dramatically, and USPatterns states that at least two pieces are confirmed. With such a small production run, every piece was a first strike, meaning it should not be surprising that the surfaces exhibit such profound contrast between the fields and devices. Each side is bright and unoxidized with just the slightest hairlines visible with a magnifier. Superior overall quality.
    Ex: Walter Lee Crouch Collection (Superior, 6/1977), lot 389; Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2012), lot 5426.
