1875 Twenty Cent piece, ICG AU-55, scratched, cleaned.  The 1875 Philadelphia version is one of the more rare dates.  It is even more rare than the Carson City example.   NOTE:  This coin has been very badly handled in the past and shows that damage, nevertheless, it is a rare date and desirable as such. Note:  This Philadelphia issue is much more rare than the San Francisco version.  The public in the West required a Twenty Cent piece, since they did not accept the new, non-silver, 5 cent piece (Shield Nickel).  By using the 20 cent piece, and the Quarter Dollar, the public could make a 5 cent transaction.  Since people in the East and South used the new Nickel, there was no demand there for the 20 center.
