1857-S $20 Liberty PCGS MS65 Prooflike. Variety 20A with Spiked Shield. Ex: S.S. Central America. SSCA 4960. We are amazingly fortunate to have not one MS63 Deep Mirror Prooflike for sale, but now the sole MS65 Prooflike example from the heralded S.S. Central America shipwreck!! WOW!!
We feel the market for the S.S. Central America memorabilia, specifically this type of coin, is on the verge of another market surge. The second salvage has now been brought up from the depths, has been basically cataloged and seems to be nearing the end of the legal tangles that always seem to follow such a recovery, no matter where on earth it is located. Upon it’s release, there will be national coverage on all of the networks and the publics attention will once again be centered. Many will want to own a piece of this historical treasure and coins with the S.S. Central America special inserts should sell out quite quickly. This demand should immediately cause quite a shortage and prices will most likely advance.
If you happen to own THE PINNACLE of the recovered treasure, as is this specimen offered here, it is entirely possible that the prices for these few coins could go stratospheric. Own it before the masses flood in…!
