This MS62 certified example brings overt natural patina covering lightly frosted surfaces. Bright light inspection exposes a healthy amount of luster and active cartwheels. Golden-gray coloring is continuous on both sides. Strike is quite pleasing with elevated stars and raised LIBERTY. Reverse eagle wing feathers are also nicely detailed. The assigned grade is a function of luster expectations since the surfaces are essentially unabraded. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC approval.

Seated 20C 1875S 1875-S
Gem $13000 For The Finest Seated Type Set, Gem Original, Intense Steely Luster, Gorgeous Toning.. This piece is a stunner under a light, revealing swirling shades of russet, gold, and blue, and it is challenging to recreate this effect with a single image. Active cartwheel accompanies the rich toning and the eye appeal is strong. Surfaces are virtually flawless and close inspection with a glass identifies only the barest ticks. BF-13, with a misplaced digit in the denticles and a filled mintmark, while a few spider-web die cracks are evident in the reverse legend. The excellent Brunner-Frost guide to twenty-cent varieties is freely available at The twenty-cent denomination was a short-lived concession to the silver lobby, who had little use for the coin after Morgan dollars went into production in 1878. PCGS notes six pieces in MS67 and one in MS68, while CAC reports only one piece higher, at MS67. Housed in a PCGS Gen 5.0 (2015) Dupont hologram holder with CAC approval. This piece is an excellent choice for a collector seeking a single piece to exhibit the twenty-cent denomination, and will draw appreciation from even the most advanced numismatists.
