Description

1857-S Spiked Shield Twenty, MS66
S.S. Central America Gold Insert

1857-S $20 Spiked Shield MS66 PCGS. CAC. Variety 20A. Ex: S.S. Central America. SSCA 2708. The recovery of the Central America and its long-lost golden cargo transformed several fields of U.S. numismatics, not least the collecting of Type One double eagles. This Premium Gem doubles as California Gold Rush sunken treasure and one of the most accessible type coins for its grade. The classic toning mix of pale yellow interiors and richer orange-influenced outer toning is present, the latter hue appearing behind Liberty's head as well. Great luster with just one small line of reed marks at the lower left reverse margin.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 2696, Variety PCGS# 70000, Base PCGS# 8922)
