From a mintage of more than 1.1 million pieces, the 1856-S Liberty double eagle has always been available in lower circulated grades, but Mint State specimens were very rare before the issue surfaced in large numbers in modern shipwreck finds. More than 1,000 examples of the 1856-S were recovered from the wreck of the S.S. Central America alone, representing 18 different die varieties. Many of these coins were in Mint State grades, making the 1856-S a popular choice with branch mint type collectors. This beauty exhibits more luster and a lighter, more yellow-gold (as opposed to orange-gold) hue than seen in our pictures.
