    1877 Twenty Cent, PR64 Cameo
    Proof-Only Issue, 510 Coins Struck

    1877 20C PR64 Cameo NGC. BF-1, R.3. The Mint employed a single die pair to coin 510 twenty cent proofs in 1877. There was no demand for circulation strikes, and even the proofs on-hand failed to sell out. The new Brunner-Frost reference notes that the net mintage for the 1877 is reported to be 350 proofs after unsold coins were melted. This is the first of two proof-only issues in the series, and examples are scarcer than their 1878 counterparts. The surfaces of this brilliant Choice proof offer pronounced white-on-black contrast that verges on Ultra Cameo. Delicate obverse hairlines limit the grade.(Registry values: N2998)
