Description & Analysis

If the intent of the 20-cent piece was to increase the government's use of silver, the Carson City Mint contributed very little to this effort in 1875. Its modest production confirms that this denomination was not really needed, though this figure is only slightly lower than that of the 1875-CC quarter dollar, so there were clearly other factors affecting production.

The Brunner/Frost book reports four die marriages for 1875-CC 20-cent pieces, though one more surfaced shortly after its publication. The Flynn book on this series lists both a misplaced-date variety and a repunched date, but both are too minor to attract much collector interest.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
