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.
A pleasing example of this better date.
A well detailed and pleasing example of the only Carson City Twenty Cent Piece other than the ultra-rare '76-CC.
Sharply struck with bright white luster. Outstanding for the grade.
A needle-sharp strike with no significant marks and vibrant mint luster with a light champagne tint. Only 14,640 minted.
