|MAGNIFICENT SS REPUBLIC NGC SHIPWRECK SEATED LIBERTY|
offer US $1,300.00
Grade: Shipwreck Effect Mint: New Orleans Certification: NGC Material: Silver Certification Number: *******-142 Method of Manufacture: Business Strike Condition: Uncirculated In 1861, the New Orleans Mint operated under control of 3 different governments. When Louisiana seceded from the Union in February 1861, it took control of the US Federal Branch mint in New Orleans and continued to strike silver Seated Liberty half dollars using the federal dies. When Louisiana joined the Confederate States of America (CSA), the mint was turned over to the CSA, and additional half dollars were minted using the same dies. Somehow during the Civil War a number of these 1861-O Liberty Seated half dollars made it to New York. After the war, they were loaded aboard the side-wheel steamship Republic to return to New Orleans to help rebuild the South. The Republic never made it. Off the coast of Georgia, she was caught in a violent hurricane and sank on October 25, 1865. In August 2003, Odyssey Marine Explorations, Inc. located the wreck nearly 1700 feet deep in the Atlantic ocean. 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 coins surfaces. Each coin was then carefully conserved by Numismatic Conservation Services. After extensive examination, NGC has certified the die and attribution of each SS Republic 1861-O half dollar to the Union, the State of Louisiana, or the Confederate States of America control of the mint. The coin is certified by NGC with a special certification "Shipwreck Effect (C) UNC with certification # 1794484-142, and is in superb condition. This beautiful coin is certified as a Louisiana State Issue, and is one of the favorites of my collection, as it represents a real piece of history that can be admired daily. Everything you see pictured is included and it displays magnificently in it's custom box, and the DVD that is included about the wreck and the recovery operations is extraordinarily well done and informative.
