1852-O $20 Obverse
from the SS Republic
She has been called the “Forest Gump” of Civil War steamships. She survived multiple hurricanes, participated in attempts to overthrow Central American governments, and served on both sides in the U.S. Civil War.

The SS Republic had quite a storied history before fate finally caught up with her off the coast of North Carolina in October 1865. A treasure of gold and silver coins worth an estimated $75 million today went down with her and would remain there for the next 140 years.
