Description & Analysis

A classic American rarity, the 1876-CC 20-cent piece is known to the extent of fewer than 20 examples. All of these are Mint State or close to it, and they were clearly preserved as souvenirs by persons who may or may not have known of their rarity at the time. Nearly all of the 10,000 coins struck were still on hand when the order came to discontinue this denomination and destroy existing stocks.

All of the pieces known are from a single pair of dies, the obverse one being boldly doubled. Obviously, this adds no value to what is already a very rare and expensive coin.

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.
