1857-S Liberty Eagle. AU-53 (NGC). With only 10 or so examples discovered with the shipwreck of the <em>S.S. Republic</em>, the 1857-S remains an elusive Liberty Eagle in all grades. The present example is lightly worn over bold-to-sharp devices. Honey-rose in color, with wispy abrasions that are commensurate with the grade.<br /> This lot includes a deluxe wooden presentation box as well as a Certificate of Authenticity issued by Odyssey Marine Exploration, Inc., salvagers of the <em>S.S. Republic </em>shipwreck and its treasure.
