SSCA #1 1856-S $20, PCGS/CAC MS63CAC

Variety 17B/SSCA 5157. In the original gold foil insert holder.

In the first recovery from the S.S. Central America, a total of 1,085 double eagles dated 1856-S were located. These are much harder to locate in MS63 and higher grades than their counterparts dated 1857-S yet they sell for just a small premium.

This is an exceptional example which might well grade MS64 by today’s standards. It is choice and very frosty with just a few small ticks in the left obverse field noted. The color is a lovely rich yellow gold which deepens at the borders. Looked at on its own, the reverse is close to a full MS65.

Two recent APRs for examples in the original holder include Heritage 10/18: 3198 at $19,200 and Heritage 1/18: 5098 at $20,400.

This coin does not include the original box and COA, but these are easy to locate and I can try to provide them to the buyer if so requested.
