Natural gold flakes and dust, 1.5 grams, encapsulated PCGS Authentic / S.S. Central America (1857). This wreck was famous for its yield of gold coins and large gold bars, but just as interesting were the massive amounts of dust and flakes and small nuggets, which not only were "mined twice" (because the modern salvagers had to sluice the gold from the sand just like the original miners did) but also represent the miners' personal fortunes as they were coming back to the East. The present item is a very marketable grouping of pre-packaged dust and flakes with an official "gold tag" from PCGS. From the SS Central America (1857).
