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!
Blast white with frosted devices producing a beautiful 'cameo' contrast. 2,790 proofs minted for this first year issue in this short-lived series.
A well worn but attractive example of this scarce date.
Here's an attractive example of the only collectible Caron City Twenty Cent Piece. This coin is extremely well struck with crisp mint luster shinning thru soft champagne toning.
A very pleasing, well detailed coin with remnants of mint luster and nice light steel-gray surfaces.
Well struck with crisp luster and just a touch of toning.
CAC approved. Well struck with no apparent wear and a rich silver-gray patina with a hint of gold.
Well struck with a faint golden haze on the obverse and a blast white reverse. Very nice!
CAC approved. A splendid Gem from the second year of this short-lived series. Extremely well struck with satiny white luster and mark-free smooth surfaces. Only 14,640 pieces struck. Fantastic quality!
Beautiful blast white luster with wonderful contrast from heavily frosted devices. A rare proof-only date with a mintage of just 350!
