Shipwreck coins at auction

More booty recovered from the wreck of the S.S. New York will be sold at auction July 30-31 by Stack’s at the Tower Beverly Hills Hotel prior to the American Numismatic Association convention in Los Angeles.

Recovered from the wreck were 400 gold and 2,000 silver coins. Some of these were high-grade coins from Philadelphia and New Orleans of the 1830s and 1840s. The ship sank in 1846 in the Gulf of Mexico.

The bulk of recovered coins were sold by the firm last year.

Those that remain as well as some bottles, silverware and other artifacts will also go on the block in the 1,500-lot auction.
