Choice 'Spiked Shield' 1857-S Twenty
Ex:
S.S. Central America

1857-S $20 MS64 PCGS. CAC. Variety 20A. Ex: S.S. Central America. SSCA 3472. Crippled by a hurricane, the S.S. Central America slipped into the Atlantic Ocean on September 12, 1857, taking with it a hoard of recently coined 1857-S double eagles. Those were recovered circa-1988 and have marveled collectors since their distribution a dozen years later. This is an orange-gold near-Gem that boasts a precise strike and a nearly pristine reverse. The cheek displays a few faint grazes. Housed in a gold label holder.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2696, PCGS# 8922)
