Conservatively graded 20 years ago in our opinion, VERY nice for the grade. This is the 20A Spiked Shield variety PCGS MS62 specimen. Central America Shipwreck example that has all the characteristics of a Mint State quality specimen but at a lower price.This coin displays a brilliant orange-gold color, with near perfect surfaces, hard to imagine it was underwater for over 150 years. Comes with the original display box and certificate of authenticity.
Fresh to the market after years of residing in a collectors deposit box. This example is a representative of the SS Central Americas first recovery. Its housed in an original PCGS Gold Foil holder. Just over 6,000 Double Eagles were recovered in different dates and grades. About the SS Central America Shipwreck.Central America carried the most talked about treasure in American history. From 1852 to 1857: This pre- Civil War Central America Steamship transported an estimated one-third of the entire California Gold Rush output. The gold for these coins was mined during the California Gold Rush. There also was a much smaller quantity of other historic gold coins that circulated in the Wild West from private Assayers that are pretty valuable as well.
