Greysheet Catalog Details (GSID: 5039)

The 1875-CC Twenty cents is part of a series of Seated Liberty twenty cent piece coins struck from 1875-1876. Struck in Carson City and designated as a Business (MS) strike, this coin is made of 90% silver; 10% copper from a mintage of 133,290 struck.
The 1875-CC Twenty Cent Piece is of the first year and the only collectible issue from the ever-popular Carson City Mint for this short, desirable series. The need for 20 Cents presented itself in the West as those branch mints were incapable of producing enough coinage overall to satisfy the need of the people at that time. That incapability came from the U.S. Mint favoring Philadelphia as it is and was the main flagship Mint. This date is known for having an overall poor strike. It comes from a mintage of 133,290, remains somewhat common up to and including MS64, and progresses at a very gradual rate from 1 to 64. Although it does exist in MS65 through MS67, there are only 80 PCGS and NGC graded examples remaining in existence according to population reports. There are 65 in the MS65 range, which make up most of the uncommon grades. MS66 accounts for 14 of those 80 and are very scarce. But it is the lone finest known NGC graded MS67 that is a true rarity and has not seen the market since 2009.
Obverse: Lady Liberty is seated on a rock, holding a staff, and bearing a shield with the word LIBERTY on a flowing ribbon. 13 stars have adorn the periphery and the date appears at the bottom center.
Reverse: An eagle is prominently featured with the words UNITED STATES OF AMERICA * TWENTY CENTS around the periphery. The mint mark appears in the vertical space between the eagle and Y C of TWENTY CENTS.

Greysheet & CPG® PRICE GUIDE

About CDN Prices

All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.

CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.

Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.

Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.

CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.

Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.

The prices listed in our database are intended to be used as an indication only. Users are strongly encouraged to seek multiple sources of pricing before making a final determination of value. CDN Publishing is not responsible for typographical or database-related errors. Your use of this site indicates full acceptance of these terms.
