    1857-S Double Eagle, AU58
    Partially Lustrous Type One Issue

    1857-S $20 AU58 NGC. Most known high-grade 1857-S twenties are from the salvage of the S.S. Central America, but most of those pieces are Uncirculated. Whether this piece came from that famous shipwreck or not, it is an affordable example of this challenging type. Each side retains significant portions of reddish-tinted mint luster, especially surrounding the devices. The obverse is a bit choppy from contact with other coins.(Registry values: N1793)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2696, PCGS# 8922)

    Weight: 33.44 grams
