    1877 Twenty Cent, PR64
    Originally Toned Proof, CAC Endorsed

    1877 20C PR64 NGC. CAC. BF-1, R.3. Undeniably the key to the short twenty cent series, seemingly all 1877 proofs were either included with the silver proof sets sold (an estimated at 350 sets) or melted. A total of 510 proofs were struck, and no circulation strikes since the series was officially discontinued. Among the survivors, many coins are cleaned or otherwise impaired, leaving a small number of attractive, original examples for specialists in the short, eminently collectible series.

    This near-Gem proof has the look of a coin that was long preserved in its early method of storage. Much cameo contrast exists between the frosted devices and mirrored fields, while the perimeters display deep, cobalt-blue and russet-brown shades that surround the bright-silver centers. The eye appeal is spectacular. Both sides possess a pinpoint-sharp strike, and the overall Choice proof quality is confirmed by CAC endorsement.
