Description:
S.S. Central America Spiked Shield
Near-Gem 1857-S Twenty Dollar
1857-S $20 MS64 PCGS. CAC. Variety 20A. Ex: S.S. Central America. SSCA 1011. This lovely sun-gold treasure ship example appears to merit an even higher grade upon initial inspection, since the fields are well preserved. Minor grazes on the cheek confirm classification as a high end MS64. In a July 2000 Numismatist article, Robert Evans designated Variety 20A as the Spiked Shield due to its "two short, deep die scratches to the left of and penetrating the eagle's shield." Housed in a gold label holder.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2696, PCGS# 8922)
