It looks like the company that recovered a bunch of rare U.S. gold coins from a shipwreck off the coast of North Carolina can now begin selling them.
The U.S. Federal District Court in Tampa, Florida has issued an order granting ownership of over 600 artifacts and pieces of treasure recovered to date from the wreck of the SS Pulaski to Blue Water Ventures International and project partner Endurance Exploration Group.
The recovered collection of artifacts includes some of the earliest and rarest United States gold coins ever found on a shipwreck. The SS Pulaski sank off the coast of North Carolina in 1838.
According to Blue Water Ventures:
“With the court’s affirmation of ownership of all Pulaski treasures recovered to date, efforts to monetize the treasures will now begin. As stated in earlier releases, Numismatic Guarantee Corporation (NCG) has been authorized to conserve and authenticate the coins and other artifacts. The coins will be encapsulated and labeled with the denomination, variety, grade, pedigree, serial number, and other info relevant to the Steamboat Pulaski.”
