Extremely Rare 1857 O New Orleans Twenty Dollar Double Eagle Gold Piece. This is the coin made famous by the discovery of the S.S. Republic. The Republic left New York on October 18, 1865 bound for New Orleans. She was carrying passengers and a cargo of $400,000 in coins, mostly in gold $10 and $20 pieces, intended for use as hard currency after the Civil War. At 4 pm on October 25, 1865, she sank. In August 2003, the wreck of the Republic was located by Odyssey Marine Exploration, Inc., a commercial archaeology company in Tampa, Florida. She was found about 100 miles southeast of Savannah, Georgia, in about 1,700 feet (500 meters) of water. A salvage effort recovered about one-third of the rare 19th century gold and silver coins carried aboard, worth an estimated $75 million. Included in the recovery were three uncirculated 1857 O's to bring the number of uncirculated 1857 O's to six known. The 1857 O is rare in any condition and slightly less rare than the 1858 O. PCGS estimates that there are only 209 pieces known. This coin has been in the same family for over 50 years and received its PCGS designation of XF details for having been worn around the owner's neck as a pendent, she having no idea of the rarity and value of this coin. It has great eye appeal with very light wear. This is your chance to own one of the truly rare Double Eagle Twenty Dollar Gold Pieces. http://www.unitedstatesrarecoin.com/collections/coins-paper-money-coins-us-gold-20-double-eagle-1/products/1857-o-rare-pcgs-type-one-liberty-head-double-eagle-twenty-dollar-gold-coin
