    The American twenty-cent piece is a coin struck from 1875 to 1878, but only for collectors in the final two years. Proposed by Nevada Senator John P. Jones, it proved a failure due to confusion with it being the same size and value of the quarter

    No, only the Philadelphia mint made proofs back then.

    No, but IMO it's been cleaned.

    There were also a small number of 1875 S "proofs"

    I think it may have the right rev die, but that rev was used on three different varieties. I can't be sure because the image isn't good enough (There is another very similar rev used two other varieties.) and there is also no image of the obverse.

    It’s not the same size, it has a diameter of 22mm compared to 24.3mm (25C).

    It looks like a normal business strike to me.

    No. Not a proof.
