Lot Description
1875 20C MS65 NGC. The year 1875 is one of the rare instances wherein branch mint production was well above that of the mother Mint. Philadelphia struck just 36,910 business strikes for the twenty cent piece, while Carson City put out a six-figure mintage and San Francisco struck over a million pieces of the type. This mildly prooflike Gem has light honey-gold toning and exceptionally smooth surfaces. Only the eagle's breast lacks a full strike. Census: 21 in 65, 11 finer (3/09). From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
