Description & Analysis

Treasure recovered in the late 1970s from the S.S. Yankee Blade shipwreck yielded a couple of hundred 1854-S double eagles, including many high grade examples, according to the Garrett-Guth reference on U.S. gold coinage. The same authors relate that the salvaged coins have surfaces that are 'lightly etched from exposure to seawater.'
