Impressive Premium Gem 1857-S Spiked Shield Twenty,
Ex:
S.S. Central America

1857-S $20 Spiked Shield MS66 PCGS. CAC. Ex: S.S. Central America. Variety 20A. SSCA 0383. Although the 1857-S is the most numerous double eagle from the S.S. Central America shipwreck hoard, coins as lustrous and well preserved as the present Gem are scarce, especially when compared to the number of high-grade specialists in today's hobby. This is a beautiful double eagle, and the surfaces only show a handful of minor marks. A razor-sharp strike and frosty, orange-gold surfaces are included on this coin's list of positive attributes. A technically impressive piece with splendid eye appeal.
