Description:
1857-S Double Eagle, MS65
Flashy 'Spiked Shield' Example
1857-S $20 MS65 NGC. Variety 20-A. Spiked Shield. Although this piece bears no identification that specifically provenances it to the S.S. Central America -- the doomed ship that foundered in a hurricane in 1857 -- it is a virtual certainty that this piece was aboard. Not only were high-grade 1857-S double eagles virtually unknown before the recovery of the ship's treasure, but the Spiked Shield was the most common of several varieties among the many 1857-S coins on board. This Gem sports flashy luster over medium yellow-gold surfaces that darken slightly at the rims, another telltale.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2696, PCGS# 8922)
