Shipwreck effect

Glen2022Glen2022 Posts: 809 ✭✭✭✭

I have seen some seated liberties attributed to the SS New York with the term "shipwreck effect" on the NGC label. No numerical grade assigned. Some coins have pretty good surfaces/fields, some not to good, almost look like they have a bumpy surface. Can some one give me more information on the term Shipwreck effect? Thanks in advance.

    "Shipwreck Effect" is a term that sounds better to collectors than Conserved/Cleaned. ;)

    Plus, they have PMD and many/most might not be eligible for slabbing if not for the special designation.

    What JBK said and the possible grade detail is cancelled out by the eroding effect of the deep blue sea. They made it into a holder because someone proved provenance. Peace Roy
