    The SS Republic, a side-wheel steamship, met its fate during a hurricane off the coast of Georgia on October 25, 1865. The vessel was carrying a significant cargo of gold and silver coins, along with other valuable items. Among the treasures lost at sea were numerous Liberty Double Eagles, including the 1862 $20 gold coin in question.

What sets this specific coin apart is the anomaly known as the "Doubled 86." Minted at the Philadelphia Mint, the 1862 $20 Liberty Double Eagle exhibits a peculiar doubling of the digits "8" and "6" in the date. This doubling, visible on the obverse of the coin, adds a distinct and intriguing characteristic to its appearance.

The shipwreck and subsequent recovery of the SS Republic's cargo added an extra layer of historical significance to these coins. Discovered by Odyssey Marine Exploration in 2003, the recovery efforts unveiled a treasure trove of numismatic wonders, including the "Doubled 86" variety of the 1862 $20 Liberty Gold Double Eagle.
