Greysheet Catalog Details (GSID: 5040)
The 1875-S Twenty Cent Piece is of the first and only year of issue from the San Francisco Mint known to be the ultimate type coin for this short, desirable series as it is plentiful and affordable. Be mindful of the S over S Variety that is a bit scarcer. It comes from a healthy mintage of 1,155,000 but it is very common in every grade up to and including MS65. From MS62 through MS65 there are 4 total PL examples in NGC holders, which is the total for this date. Although it does exist in MS66 through MS68, there are only 144 PCGS and NGC graded examples remaining in existence according to population reports. There are 128 in the MS66 range, which make up a large majority of the relatively uncommon grades. MS67 accounts for 14 of those 144; and they are very scarce. It is the 2 MS68s that are true condition rarities. A special strike issue of this date was also struck and is extremely rare.
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.
