About 1876-CC 20-Cent Pieces
The 1876-CC Twenty Cent coin is one of the absolute great numismatic rarities in the history of the United States Mint. The original mintage of 10,000 is meaningless as the Mint Director called for the melting of all coins of the Twenty Cent denomination in the following year. The similar size to quarters brought upon great confusion between the two and it being such a strange denomination led to the quick demise. That directorial order wiped out this date and mintmark combination almost entirely leaving a survival estimate of under 20 coins that are all from the same die pair. Most of the 20 are in uncirculated condition. The Mint State examples are recorded in every grade from MS61 through MS66.
The highest amount brought at auction for this coin was $564,000 in a 2013 Stack?s Bowers Auction. The most recent sale of the date was sold at the Long Beach Expo through Heritage Auctions and brought $456,000 for the CAC approved MS64 "Battle Born" Specimen. A six-figure value in any condition, this coin is a staple of American Numismatics and highlights any and all collections it is a part of.

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.
