Set of three USA (New Orleans mint) half dollars, seated Liberty, from the SS Republic (1865), encapsulated NGC Shipwreck Effect ( C ) UNC, representing US issue (1860-O), Louisiana issue (1861-O, W-07) and Confederate issue (1861-O, W-15), in promotional case. KM-A68. 10-3/4" x 7-1/4" x 2-1/2" (case). All three coins display light surface corrosion {as noted with [C] UNC grades) and a fascinating commemorative set on the secession of Louisiana and its admission to the Confederate States during the Civil War. In fact, the 1861-O Confederate-issued half dollar shares the same obverse die as the four known 1861-O half dollars with "Confederate States of America" on the reverse. From the SS Republic (1865), in promotional case with certificate.
