1854-S $20 Liberty. Sharpness of MS-63. Light scratches. Found years ago from a shipwreck, this has splendid mint color and a very sharp strike on all devices. Relics from the sunken steamship S.S. Yankee Blade were salvaged by divers around 1977, and at least 200 to 250 specimens of 1854-S gold $20 coins are believe to have been found (although no exact figures have been released). As is often true of treasure salvage situations, little factual information is forthcoming; most of the coins have seawater effect from years of immersion in the salty brine (PCGS # 8913) .
Estimated Value $3,000 - 3,300.
Ex: The Brentwood Park Estate.
