Description & Analysis

With an original mintage of only 20 pieces, the proof 1877 twenty dollar gold piece possesses rarity that matches that of the most elusive issues from the 1860s. David Akers asserts that fewer than 10 examples are available in today's market, although he concludes that an estimate of 6-8 coins is probably more accurate.
