Owner Comments:

Of the 1260 proofs minted, this example is tied for the finest currently known. The 1876 20-cent piece represents the second highest mintage of the series, which is largely attributed to extra proofs being struck in conjunction with the Centennial Exhibition held in Philadelphia that same year.



This superb gem proof shimmers with emerald, lavender, turquoise, and gold tones over the entire coin, with the colors changing when held at different angles to the light. This well-struck coin has highly defined devices as attested by the high grade given by NGC. A beautiful coin with the highest technical ranking of any proof 20-cent piece graded by either NGC or PCGS.
