1875 Twenty Cents. NGC graded MS-67. Lovely blue and golden toning. The Philadelphia Mint produced the twenty-cent denomination intended for circulation in 1875 and 1876 only, with mintages of 36,910 and 14,640, respectively. Fewer than a hundred specimens have ever received any gem grade by either NGC or PCGS and the 1875 issue is about twice as rare in gem condition. The present specimen is spectacular and is one of the finest examples known for the twenty-cent denomination! Satiny silver surfaces are glazed with soft champagne toning and accented by magenta and electric blue peripheral toning. On both the obverse and reverse, the devices are frosty; the luster shifts and skips across them without pause. Razor-sharp devices are free from any abrasions. An extremely important opportunity for someone looking for a finest known twenty-cent type example! Best of all: Pop 5; none finer. In a new 4 prong NGC holder.
Estimated Value $15,000 - 17,000.
The Mark Gordon Collection.

Realized $14,950
