    1877 Twenty Cent, PR65 Cameo
    Net Mintage of 350 Pieces

    1877 20C PR65 Cameo NGC. BF-1, R.3. According to Lane Brunner and John Frost, "Many unsold proofs from multiple dates were melted when the denomination was abolished. There are no records as to the exact number of 1877 proof coins melted, but the widely accepted value for the net mintage is 350." In other words, about 160 of the 510 proofs struck in 1877 were destroyed right off the bat. This Gem Cameo survivor is fully toned in dusky violet patina with iridescent accents of peach-orange, blue, green, and magenta. Great eye appeal and contrast. Census: 19 in 65 Cameo, 11 finer (8/20).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 27H4, PCGS# 85305)

    Weight: 5.00 grams
