||TWENTY-CENT PIECES, PROOF
||NGC PF 67
Of the 600 proofs minted, this example is tied for the finest currently known. The proof-only 1878 20-cent piece has the second smallest mintage of the series.
This superb gem proof has steel-gray toning on both sides accentuated by dashes of lilac, crimson, and russet. This well-struck coin is characterized by strong detail in the design components as attested by the high grade given by NGC. A magnificent example of this proof-only issue that would be hard to beat.
