I like 20 cent pieces, noticed that no one has posted in over a year. I'm sure there are some collectors out there, below is a high grade example that's coming up for sale.

That is a very attractive 1876.  It's a date that seems underestimated in the price guides.

There is an 1875-S twenty cent piece described as a quarter in an overseas auction.  I suppose it would be asking too much to find an 1876-CC through a misattribution of that sort.  But what a sweet dream...

Hi all, sorry for my absence.  I've been working like a madman on new research on William and Charles Barber.  William, of course, was the designer of the Double Dime and the Trade Dollar.
See the article in this summer's edition of the Gobrecht Journal.  
 
Yes, a very attractive 1876.  We double dime collectors have lots of different dreams on locating a previously-unknown 1876-CC - but so far, no dice!
