Description

Select 1857-S Spiked Shield Twenty Dollar MS63

1857-S $20 Spiked Shield MS63 PCGS. Ex: S.S. Central America. The spiked shield variety is attributed by a pair of raised die lines near the lower left edge of the shield. Offered here is a well struck and lustrous example that has a couple of moderate to heavy luster grazes in the left obverse field and on Liberty's cheek. The 1857-S Double Eagle was very rare in high grades prior to the recovery of the S.S. Central America hoard. The compelling story of the shipwreck and its recovery increases the demand for this Type One issue. (#70000) (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 2696, Variety PCGS# 70000, Base PCGS# 8922)
