    1877 Twenty Cent, PR65
    Famous Proof-Only Issue
    Richly Toned

    1877 20C PR65 PCGS. BF-1, R.3. The United States twenty cent piece was withdrawn from circulation almost as quickly as it entered, having been created in 1875 and eliminated in 1876. The Mint continued to strike proofs in 1877 and 1878, with this being the scarcer of the two proof-only issues. The 1877 claims a low mintage of 510 specimens, all of which are highly sought-after.

    The present coin is a richly toned Gem with cobalt-blue, sea-green, violet, and gold shades over still-flashy fields. Contrast is subdued, but not eye appeal. The visual quality of this pinpoint-sharp proof is outstanding.(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 27H4, PCGS# 5305)
