Lot Description
1875-CC 20C MS65 PCGS. This is the first-year Carson City twenty cent coin, coming from a mintage of 113,290 pieces. Near-Gems can be located with patience and searching, but finer coins are very elusive. A veneer of subtle champagne-gold color resides on the lustrous surfaces of this Gem offering, and an above-average strike leaves sharp definition on most of the design elements, save for the usual softness at the top of the left (facing) wing and the center of the breast. A few minute marks are not out of the ordinary. Population: 20 in 65, 4 finer (12/12). From The Richard P. Ariagno, M.D. Collection.
