USA (Philadelphia mint), gold $1 (Type I, Liberty head), 1853, rare provenance. 1.67 grams. UNC with rather muted luster, very faint toning, no marks or damage, could almost pass for non-salvage but accompanied by a rare and all-important letter from when the treasure was found. With original 1965 letter from Indian River Coin Co. certifying this coin's origin ("Gordy-Ashley Find"). Recovered from: "Fort Capron Treasure," lost off Ft. Pierce (east coast of Florida) in 1857
