S.S. Republic: 1862 $10 NGC MS62 (With Box & DVD)

DLRC #: 1840209 // PCGS #: 8635

A popular Civil War date, this coin was recovered from the famous SS Republic shipwreck and is one of the rarest coins to have been located there. Only 7 pieces of this date were recovered from the wreckage, with this piece tied with 2 others as the finest graded from the recovery. Only a single piece is graded finer from the limited mintage of 10,960, a NGC MS63. A fantastic, flashy piece that is perfect for the historical collector.
