SS Central America Double Eagle Gold Coins Highlight David Lawrence Rare Coin Auction

David Lawrence Rare Coins Auction 1007 - SS Central America

By David Lawrence Rare Coins ……

Our Sunday Internet Auction #1007 offers a fantastic selection 350 New Items along with 50 No Reserve lots and 25 Vault Values. All lots will begin closing at 8pm EST on Sunday, April 8. Some of the more interesting highlights from this week’s sale include:

Our first highlight is an 1875 $5 PCGS Proof 64 CAM. From a mintage of just 20 pieces, this key date is completely underrated due to the rarity of its circulation strike cousin of the same date. Less than ten pieces are known, and this piece exhibits beautiful Cameo mirrors with the slightest mark below the hair on the obverse. The reverse displays hairlines that are acceptable for the grade, but overall this piece is truly a quality example of an underrated, great coin!

This week’s second highlight coin is an 1889-CC $1 PCGS MS63. The 1889 Carson City Morgan is one of the most highly sought key dates in the Morgan dollar series. Pretty and lustrous with nice eye appeal.

This week’s third highlight coin is an 1857-S S.S. Central America Shipwreck $20 PCGS MS66 (Spiked Shield). Exciting double eagle gold coin from the famous SS Central America shipwreck. One of the few gems that were recovered from the original find from the SS Central America.

Of course there are many other highlights, so be sure to browse all lots in this exciting new sale before it closes on Sunday, April 8.
