Description 1887-S $20 -- Obverse Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. Unc. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The Philadelphia Mint's proof-only mintage of 121 coins makes the 1887-S the only collectible issue for date collectors (283,000 coins struck). Examples are plentiful in most grades, as many coins were exported for international trade and have returned in recent years after decades in foreign vaults. Mint-green and peach-gold color blend with swirling mint frost over the surfaces of this Uncirculated representative. A uniformly sharp strike defines the design elements, and the noted cleaning is not distracting. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $75.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1703.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
