    1875-CC Twenty Cent, MS65
    Ex: Pittman

    1875-CC 20C MS65 NGC. Ex: Pittman. The 1875-CC twenty-cent piece is the only collectible Carson City Mint issue of the denomination. The mintage was 133,290 coins during the year. Despite a few well-hidden hairlines and other tiny abrasions, this lovely Gem ranks among the finest examples of the issue that we have seen or handled. Sky blue, pale green, and faint amber surrounds light silver surfaces on each side. The strike is much sharper than normal, with nearly full definition at the top of the left facing wing. Census: 32 in 65, 5 finer (3/09).
    Ex: Wayte Raymond (2/1947), lot 464; John Jay Pittman (David Akers, 10/1997), lot 768.
