Counterfeit Likeliness: Low
Counterfeit twenty-cent pieces are seldom encountered even in the rare 1876-CC. Genuine coins have sharp lettering and digits and crisp angles from the fields to the letters and digits. Fine die polishing is found on business strikes which aids authentication.
The 1876 counterfeits lack these characteristics and exhibit unusual lumps of excess metal in the field. While PCGS has reported not encountering any counterfeit 1876-CC, the few known pieces combined with the doubled obverse die (LIBERTY) should make authentication easy.
