1857-S $20 Double Eagle S.S. Central Amercia NGC MS67

Liberty Head $20 (1849-1907)

It’s no secret the 1857-S $20 is the most common date discovered aboard the wreckage of the SS Central America. However, in high grade it’s a story that gets a lot more interesting considering most Double Eagles that weren’t at the BOTTOM of the ocean for over 150 years don’t even grade this high.

For all dates from the beginning of the Series to the end PCGS and NGC have only graded a combined 33 coins in MS67, with just 4 graded finer.

The most recent sale of an 1857-S $20 SS Central America PCGS MS67+ at $282,000 sent shockwaves throughout the industry. This example, just a half a point off in grade, is priced at more than three times less!

In all coin markets, rarity and condition reign king. This extraordinary example will be a highlight in any world class collection for the next generation.
