1854 O Arrows Seated Liberty Half Dollar SS Republic NGC Shipwreck Effect (in a wooden NGC display case). Don't miss this chance on an absolutely stunning piece of American Civil War history. This coin laid on the Atlantic Ocean floor, after the USS Republic was lost to a hurricane in October 1865, enroute to New Orleans to help rebuild the south after the War ended.It set there for almost 140 years, until being discovered in 2003. Much of this was hard silver coins being brought back to New Orleans for reconstruction.... And this is one of those coins. A beautiful 1854-O Arrows Half Dollar like very few others on the planet. These coins are only getting more rare and more valuable with time. That may sound like a lot, but that's not much and that's all the silver, qrts. Only a fraction of these are seated half dollars like this one. Coin collector, civil war buff, maritime memorabilia, treasure collector or just someone that appreciates cool US history. There are all kinds of people trying to get these.

SEE MY OTHER AUCTIONS, MORE RARE COINS COMING! Grading is mostly subjective and beauty is always in the eye of the beholder. I will do whatever I can to help make sure you get what you want.
