Item Description:
An unusual sighting amongst the SS Central America hoard, most examples are in grades of MS63-65, but this superb gem somehow survived the wreck and excavation with basically no marks and a nice yellow-gold sheen. Beautiful and satiny! Exciting double eagle gold coin from the famous SS Central America shipwreck.
