1857-S Double Eagle, Spiked Shield, MS64
Legendary Find From the
S.S. Central America

1857-S $20 Spiked Shield MS64 PCGS. Variety 20A. Ex: S.S. Central America. SSCA 4757. This near-Gem has the S.S. Central America signature look of deep yellow-gold margins and pale wheat-like interiors. The highly lustrous surfaces are sharply struck and reveal a few scattered marks consistent with the designated grade. Prior to 1989, the 1857-S was mostly available in grades Very Fine to Extremely Fine. The S.S. Central America discovery found more than 5,000 '57-S double eagles aboard when the ship sunk. Many were in the same state of preservation as the day they left the Mint.(Registry values: P2) (Variety PCGS# 70000, Base PCGS# 8922)
