Description

    Remarkable 1875-S Twenty Cent, MS67

    1875-S 20C MS67 NGC. MPD-002. The top of an 8 looms above the dentils beneath the prominent 8. The mintmark is filled and lightly repunched. Light aquamarine and gold toning enriches this lustrous Superb Gem, which is well-struck save for a few right-side stars. The late-state reverse dies show a network of slender cracks throughout the border. This piece is remarkably close to perfection and an outstanding candidate for the finest-quality type set. The viewer immediately notices the thick mint frost on this piece, which is all the more remarkable considering the presence of multicolored toning. Although San Francisco struck more than 1.1 million twenty cent coins in 1875, the facility passed on production of the denomination in 1876, the only other year it was struck for circulation rather than collector sales. Census: 6 in 67, 0 finer (7/11).
