The demand for treasures from the ill-fated S. S. Central America continues unabated, as 28 of the 33 ingots offered in 'Phase One' went on the market January 15 and were gone almost immediately. The prices ranged from just over $20,000 to nearly $200,000, depending on the weight and assayer of the bars.

   Our Readers Ask...

Question: 'Acceptable Light Spotting' on Slabbed Large & Half Cents Graded MS 65 BN. What does this mean?

Answer: Light spots can be acceptable for a 65 grade depending upon where the spots are and how severe or noticeable they are. You will still want the coin to be extremely pleasing with full mint luster and minimal contact marks. If you feel that the spots are too many, too large, or overly distracting, then you may want to shy away.
--Rick Montgomery, President PCGS
