1876 Twenty Cent Piece, Almost Uncirculated, Scarce

1876 Twenty Cent Piece, Almost Uncirculated, Scarce

625.00

An original example of this startlingly low mintage date, with less than 15,000 struck. In any other series, this would result in a monster Key Date. However, as relatively few collect "Double Dimes", this carries little premium versus the much more common 1875-S. Oddly enough, it is also scarcer than the 1875-CC, with roughly half the PCGS Population in AU grades, yet sells for half as much as the CC. This coin shows obvious Semi-Prooflike surfaces, not surprising given the limited use any dies would have seen. Moderately darker toning, but not too objectionable. There is a darker area beneath the Eagle, which may be where grease was on the dies when struck, or it may be due to storage at some point. Still worthy as a more unusual, scarce date to add to a U. S. Type set.
