Recommended Grade: XF40

There are a number of uncirculated 1857-S Eagles awaiting their date with the auction block, from the Central America wreck. They have spent the last decade caught in a legal battle between insurance companies and salvors.

The inevitable appearance of these coins, pristine without evidence of cleaning, makes it a good idea to delay purchasing this date (with associated high premium) in AU condition.
