1875-CC 20 Cent

Recommended Posts

I'm going to disagree here, and say it's F12. Those 20 center grading standards are a bit different.

 

Nice coin, I hope you did pay VG8 money for it.

I'm thinking split grade. with the reverse 12 and obverse 8. But not sure if its the picture. The shield looks too worn to be a 10 or more. The feathers on the reverse look good enough to make a 12+

I wish that split grading were more common. According to the ANA grading book, at least 3 letters in "Liberty" must be visible for a grade of F-12, but I do think the reverse is in that range.

 

Friends keep bringing me coins that they've had sitting around for years - inherited or from their childhood collections. I don't pretend to know more than the basics, but it's good practice for me and I can at least start them off in the right direction. It was fun to discover this 20 cent piece in an old change purse, buried in corroded Canadian cents.

I still really want one of those...

 

 

Me too. I need one for my type set and it'd be great just to have one anyway.
