USA (New Orleans mint), Seated Liberty half dollar, 1860-O, high O variety, NGC SS Republic / Shipwreck Effect. KM-A68. A difficult variety to find from the wreck; the high position of the mintmark led to the joke among numismatists that the eagle is laying an egg. AU details with patches of minor surface corrosion, a good deal of luster retained. NGC #1794478-051. Recovered from: S.S. Republic, sunk in 1865 off Georgia
