    1875 Twenty Cent Piece, PR65
    First of Four Annual Issues

    1875 20C PR65 PCGS. BF-1, R.1. In the mid 1870s, the U.S. Mint tried an unsuccessful experiment, issuing a coin of the denomination of 20 cents. The size was nearly the same as the quarter dollar, and the diameter was less than 10% smaller. Even though the designs were not identical, they were close enough to create confusion, despite the plain edge versus the reeded edge of the quarter. The experiment failed, leaving a brief, four year coinage emission. This Gem proof is one of those coins, featuring subdued mirrors under the rich blue-steel toning. Population: 21 in 65 (1 in 65+), 14 finer (4/20).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 27GZ, PCGS# 5303)

    Weight: 5.00 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
