USA, 1857-S $20 SS Central America (Gold Label) MS64 PCGS

Spiked Shield 20-A, SSCA-3398. Frosty and sharply struck with a double dose of eye appeal. Mostly brilliant surfaces with blushes of antique-gold and apricot. A handsome and thoroughly desirable specimen having a fascinating history. The recovery of thousands of gold coins and bars from the wreck of the S.S. Central America was the inspiration for the book A California Gold Rush History by Q. David Bowers which featured illustrations of dozens if not hundreds of items recovered from the wreck of the famous treasure ship. (70000)
