The 1875-S Seated Liberty Twenty Cent Piece is a desirable coin among collectors, particularly due to its relatively high mintage compared to other Seated Liberty Twenty Cent pieces. Here's a breakdown of its key characteristics and value:

  • Mintage: Unlike many Seated Liberty Twenty Cent pieces known for low mintages, the 1875-S boasts a relatively high number of coins minted – exceeding 1.15 million. This makes them more accessible to collectors compared to scarcer years.

  • Design: It features the classic Seated Liberty design on the obverse, showcasing Lady Liberty seated on a rock draped in an American flag. The reverse depicts a heraldic eagle with a shield on its chest.

  • Value Range: The worth of your 1875-S Seated Liberty Twenty Cent Piece depends on its condition:

    • Circulated Condition: These coins have been in circulation and will exhibit wear. Their value can range from around $80 to $650 depending on the level of detail remaining. More worn examples might be closer to $80, while those with discernable features could reach higher values within this range.
    • Uncirculated Condition: Uncirculated specimens in pristine condition are significantly more valuable. Professional grading services like PCGS or NGC assign a grade (MS-60 to MS-70) that determines the exact worth. Generally, higher grades with sharper details and full luster will command premium prices. An MS-64 grade can reach around $1,800, while exceptionally well-preserved MS-70 coins can go for much higher prices.

Where to Find Value Info:

Online marketplaces like eBay and reputable coin dealers can provide insights into current asking prices for 1875-S Seated Liberty Twenty Cent Pieces in various grades.
