Lot Description
1875-S 20C MS67 NGC. MPD-002. With a mintage more than five times that of all the other business strike twenty cents issues combined, it is little wonder that the 1875-S has become the type coin of choice for this short-lived odd denomination. The Superb Gem offered here is one of the finest known representatives, since NGC and PCGS have certified just two finer examples between them (10/07). The luster is frosty with a touch of satin, and both sides show delicate golden-tan toning with hints of pink and silver-gray. The reverse margins show a measure of blue-green patina as well. Though the upper and right stars of the obverse show a degree of softness, the rest of the coin is well-defined, and its visual appeal is as amazing as its overall preservation.
