Lot Description
1875 20C MS60 PCGS. First year of issue for this short-lived type, only 39,700 pieces were produced of the 1875-P Twenty Cent Piece. The fields display some prooflike characteristics, and establish a mild contrast with the motifs. Bright surfaces are visited by whispers of golden-brown patina that gravitate toward the borders and run sparingly over the central areas. The design elements are well struck, except for softness on the eagle's breast and left leg feathers. A few minor marks on Liberty's portrait and some wispy slidemarks in the fields are not offensive.
