Lot Description
1875-CC $20 MS63 NGC. Bright and lustrous for this date and issue, and further enhanced by very attractive yellow-gold and orange tints in the fields. Fairly well struck by the dies, with no weak areas seen. Liberty's face has a few nicks from handling, including a small tick on her jaw, another before her lips and one near her neck in the field below. This is the double die reverse as noted in Breen's Encyclopedia. Despite the generous mintage of 111,151 coins, this is a very scarce date in this grade, and nearly impossible to find better. NGC and PCGS have graded a combined 36 examples this high with just two seen finer. Ex: Eagle Collection. From The Richard J. Chouinard Collection of United States Coins, Part One.
