1856-S $20 AU55 PCGS. CAC. Variety 17O. Ex: S.S. Central America. SSCA 5625. No Serif, Left S. One of the high-quality 1856-S twenties salvaged from the ill-fated S.S.

This die pairing is one of 18 varieties that were identified when the treasure could be studied in detail. The No Serif refers to a missing upper-left serif on the U in UNITED. Left S describes the mintmark, which leans slightly left. Lustrous with few abrasions and remarkably smooth surfaces, this is a high-end AU and Choice for the grade. Housed in a special gold label PCGS holder confirming its shipwreck origin. Population: 8 in 55, 50 finer (1/14).(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 2692, PCGS# 8919)
