(Not SOS, but) SS Central America
Despite a mintage of 970,500 pieces, this was a rare issue in high grade before the advent of modern shipwreck finds. Like most Type One double eagles, the 1857-S was not difficult to locate in circulated grades, but Mint State specimens were extremely rare before thousands of high quality coins were salvaged from the wreck of the S.S. Central America. That famous shipwreck find made high grade Type One double eagles available to collectors for the first time. As Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth note, it “changed the landscape of collecting double eagles profoundly.” Seemingly always popular and in demand.
