1856-S $20 Liberty S.S. Central America. PCGS graded MS-60 PQ. In the gold foil holder. Exhibits lovely golden toning. Housed in a special box as issued by California Gold Group. A pristine 1856-S from the S.S. Central America and a satiny delight. The frosty honey gold surfaces display attractive orange gold colors in a delightful sheen, with a hint of an even higher grade in the iridescence mingling warmly on both sides. Boldly struck, appealing specimen. Despite the substantial mintage of this date (1,189,750 pieces), in choice Mint State 64 or finer grades its reputation as a rarity is secure. PCGS has certified very few examples of the date in the special purpose holders. The present specimen easily rivals any other specimen in this outstanding grade, and is certainly notable. We expect to see serious bidding activity when this beautiful early San Francisco branch mint double eagle crosses the auction block (PCGS # 8696) .
Estimated Value $4,000 - 4,400.
Ex: S.S. Central America Treasure.

Realized $6,900
