    Description

    1878 Twenty Cent Piece, PR66
    Visually and Technically Sharp

    1878 20C PR66 NGC. BF-1, R.3. Two years of sporadic circulation-strike and proof coinage, followed by a pair of proof-only issues in 1877 and 1878, comprise the entirety of the twenty cent series. The extreme rarity of the 1876-CC makes completion of the circulation strike set impossible for most collectors, putting increased demand on the proof series. This final-year proof boasts delightful mirroring and frosty, sharp design elements. Perhaps the chief attribute beyond its seldom seen PR66 grade is the vivid toning that blankets each side in navy-blue, mint-green, and lavender-orange hues. Census: 24 in 66, 2 finer (11/15).
    From The Kling Family Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 27H5, PCGS# 5306)

    Weight: 5.00 grams
