Item Description:
Very popular amongst collectors and historians, this is a popular shipwreck recovery piece from the legendary SS Republic. Most surviving pieces were of lower grade, but this gorgeous piece from the Philadephia mint that was lost on October 25, 1865 was recovered in 2003 about 100 miles easy of Savannah, Georgia. Few examples with the original box and papers still exist and this is the first opportunity that we have had to offer such a piece in recent years.
