Description

1857-S Liberty Double Eagle, MS65
Ex:
S.S. Central America

1857-S $20 MS65 PCGS. CAC. 20A Spiked Shield. Ex: S.S. Central America SSCA 1115. Type One double eagles were almost never seen in Mint State condition before 1985, but the discovery of the S.S. Central America fundamentally changed the market for these coins when more than 5,000 1857-S double eagles were recovered from the wreck. At least eight different varieties were identified, including the "Spiked Shield" variety, recognized by the two die lines near the lower-left shield border.
The present coin is an attractive Gem, with sharply detailed design elements and well-preserved yellow and rose-gold surfaces that show only minimal signs of contact. Especially vibrant mint luster is evident on both sides and eye appeal is terrific. The 1857-S is listed among the 100 Greatest U.S. Coins. Population: 32 in 65 (1 in 65+), 3 finer (12/12).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2696, PCGS# 8922)
