Nice detail and lustre for the grade.
Some dark toning/discoloration due to being shipwreck salvage. Salvaged from the S.S. Central America, sunk in 1857.
SS Central America, known as the Ship of Gold, was a 280-foot sidewheel steamer that operated between Central America and the East Coast of the United States during the 1850s. She was originally named the SS George Law, after George Law of New York. The ship sank in a hurricane in September 1857, along with 425 of her 578 passengers and crew and 30,000 pounds of gold, contributing to the Panic of 1857.
