    1877 Twenty Cent Piece, PR65
    Rare Ultra Cameo Example

    1877 20C PR65 Ultra Cameo NGC. The short-lived twenty cent denomination was never popular with the general public because the coins were often confused with the long-established Seated Liberty quarters, which they closely resembled in size and obverse design. No business-strike examples were produced in 1877, but the Philadelphia Mint struck 510 examples in proof format to satisfy collector demand. The issue is the acknowledged key to the series today and examples with Ultra Cameo surfaces are seldom encountered.

    The present coin is a delightful Gem with well-detailed, richly frosted design elements that contrast boldly with the deeply reflective fields. Highlights of cerulean-blue and golden-tan toning visit the well-preserved surfaces. Overall eye appeal is terrific. Census: 1 in 65 Ultra Cameo, 2 finer (6/20).(Registry values: P1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 27H4, PCGS# 95305)
