Description 1856-S $20 AU50 NGC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The availability of this San Francisco issue was dramatically increased when more than 1,000 representatives were discovered among the S.S. Central America treasure. The issue's link to this famous, deadly shipwreck ensures its sustained popularity in all grades. This lightly circulated AU example exhibits pale green-gold patina with hints of original luster highlighting the protected regions. A scattering of minor surface ticks is consistent with the grade, though none are individually noteworthy. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $75.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2350.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
