    1857-S $20 Narrow Serif MS65 PCGS. Ex: S.S. Central America. SSCA 4877. Housed in the special gold label holder that PCGS created exclusively for these treasure coins. Bold details and frosty luster are hallmarks of this brilliant light yellow Gem. Both sides exhibit prominent splashes of deep orange patina along the right obverse and right reverse borders. The left outside serif of the U in UNITED is shorter and thinner than the others, giving the variety its name. The obverse has a few short spikes extending from the front edge of Liberty's neck. An outstanding example for the treasure hunter or connoisseur.
