Incredible Gem 1855-S Double Eagle
None Finer Known!
Post Lot Text
Finest by two full grade points of 304 examples from the S.S. Central America treasure certified by PCGS. Date logotype firmly impressed, top of 1 marginally closer to truncation than bottom is to dentils, left edge of lower serif over space between dentils. Nicely shaped S mintmark nominally closer to tail feathers than to denomination, leans slightly left, not right as the holder claims. Crossbar of A in STATES thin and unattached at the left side. Faint, raised vertical die lines behind the eagle's head resemble a display of the aurora borealis.
