his very short-lived series followed the Seated Liberty design of the era. Twenty Cent Pieces were struck from 1875 to 1878 with 1877 and 1878 being rare proof-only Twenty Cent Pieces. Philadelphia, Carson City and the San Francisco Mint all struck Twenty Cent Pieces.
The 1876-CC is the ‘key’ to a complete Twenty Cent Piece collection. 10,000 coins were struck but almost all were melted at the Carson City Mint. Today, a decent example of this rare Twenty Cent Piece easily fetches $100,000!
Precise detail with nice reflective proof surfaces and an attractive almond-gold hue.
Blast white and frosty with gorgeous cameo producing contrast.
Nice original dove-gray color and nearly perfect surfaces.
Heavy white frost on the design contrasts beautifully against the brilliant mirrored fields. A touch of russet-gold at the rim is a nice accent and proof of originality. A rare proof-only date with just 600 minted.
