Description

Gem 1857-S Twenty Dollar
High-End Type One Example

1857-S $20 MS65 PCGS. Not specifically pedigreed to the S.S. Central America, though the balance of probabilities leans toward a shipwreck origin. The pattern of yellow-gold color, deeper at the rims and paler (though not the usual straw-gold) at the interiors, is also consistent with the Central America pattern. Brightly swirling, lightly frosted luster shows a few shallow scrapes, most visibly on Liberty's cheek, but abrasions of any depth are minimal and the Gem designation is well-earned. An excellent coin for the type collector seeking a high-grade example of the No Motto Liberty twenty.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2696, PCGS# 8922)
