The SS Republic met its fate in 1865 off the shores of Georgia, carrying a substantial cargo of gold and silver coins. In the early 2000s, during the recovery mission, a significant collection of U.S. Silver was salvaged for the first time, presenting a unique opportunity. Remarkably, due to their stacked arrangement, the coins avoided corrosion from the saltwater, a fate commonly suffered by silver coins under such conditions. Primarily dating from 1850 to 1861, the Seated Liberty Half-Dollars exhibit remarkable preservation. Each coin has been officially certified by NGC as having a "shipwreck effect," retaining all details despite potential surface variations resulting from individual exposure to saltwater. These authentic artifacts from the shipwreck offer exceptional value for collectors or as memorable gifts, considering their historical significance and unique preservation.
