Description

Lustrous MS62 1865 Twenty Dollar
From the
S.S. Republic

1865 $20 MS62 NGC. CAC. Ex: S.S. Republic. The tumultuous year of 1865 included the end of the Civil War and the assassination of President Lincoln. The sinking of the S.S. Republic on October 25 of that year is a lesser known event, since most passengers survived, but the cargo of $400,000 face value in gold coins was lost. The wreck was located in 2003 by Odyssey Marine Exploration, and a number of 1865 double eagles were among a mixture of dates recovered. The present double eagle has dazzling cartwheel luster and a precise strike. The surfaces exhibit occasional butter-gold toning. The reverse is well preserved and the left obverse displays only moderate marks for the MS62 level.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 269U, PCGS# 8943)
