Description

1857-S Spiked Shield Twenty, MS65
An S.S. Central America Type Coin

1857-S $20 Spiked Shield MS65 PCGS. Variety 20A. Ex: S.S. Central America. SSCA 0353. For collectors seeking a Gem or better Type One Liberty double eagle, the most populous issue incidentally has one of the best stories, as the vast majority of high-grade 1857-S double eagles were recovered from the shipwreck of the S.S. Central America that same year. This MS65 example has broad, pale yellow interiors with deeper color on the rims. A few scattered marks on each side are no obstacle to the grade, nor to high all-around eye appeal. Comes with certificate of authenticity and faux-book case (no outer box).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 2696, Variety PCGS# 70000, Base PCGS# 8922)
