    Near-Superb 1875 $20 Legal Tender

    Fr. 128 $20 1875 Legal Tender PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    Both the Series 1875 and 1878 $20s are distinguished by a pair of red Roman numeral XXs at each side of the numeral 20 on the obverse. The 1878 Twenties outnumber these 1875's by nearly three to one, and by even a greater margin in top grade, as a rather long run of Choice and Gem 129's exists. This example from a Stack's sale in 2001 has the color, margins, and centering for the grade. We last sold it in September 2006, when it realized a mere $9,775. It remains one of only two graded at this level by PMG with none higher.
