Lot Description
1855-S $20 Bold S MS62 PCGS. Ex: S.S. Central America. As an issue, the 1855-S is an important one as it represents the second year of production from the newly opened San Francisco mint. Very few examples of this year were onboard the S.S. Central America when it slipped beneath the waves in 1857. However, the few examples that were salvaged have given collectors an opportunity to acquire this issue with fulsome mint luster--something that was virtually unobtainable previously. Sharply defined throughout, there are a few small abrasions scattered across the obverse but the reverse is nearly Gem quality.
