Post Lot Text
This is the only example of this issue certified by PCGS as part of the S.S. Central America treasure.Several letters in AMERICA and FIVE D. are connected by light die cracks. This reverse die was also used for some examples dated 1854. Examples of the 1854-C issue have been described by Winter in a later die state, indicating they were struck after this 1855 dated example!
