Product Details

1861-O SS Republic Liberty Seated Half Dollar. Wonderful coin struck at the historic New Orleans Mint. The coin is housed in an NGC holder with the special insert attesting to it's provenance as part of the SS Republic shipwreck.

The "S S REPUBLIC - Bound for New Orleans from New York with passengers and commercial cargo, the sidewheel steamship SS Republic was lost in a violent hurricane on October 25, 1865. In August 2003, Odyssey located the shipwreck at a depth of approximately 1,700 feet in the Atlantic Ocean about 100 miles east of Savannah, Georgia. During archaeological excavation of the site, coins were picked up individually by the Remotely Operated Vehicle "ZEUS" with a delicate silicone limpet to protect the coin's surfaces. Each coin was carefully conserved and encased in a tamper-resistant holder with a unique bar-code label from Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. Graded by NGC as "SHIPWRCK EFFECT."

A superb gift for yourself or someone else!
