So I was at the Long Beach expo this past weekend and saw a Andrea Dorra Shipwreck Silver Certificate inside of a giant PCGS Currency plexie glass slab and wanted to know more about it and was curious if some people maybe able to help me understand the significance of that note and the story behind the ship. To me, it was just a 1935 F silver certificate stuck in an oversized slab that probably costed way to much money. Anyone's opinion or thoughts on this and the topic is encouraged!

This is very interesting:
https://www.nytimes.com/1981/09/01/...re-hunt.html
The Andrea Doria was the most modern and luxurious postwar Italian ocean liner. She was accidentally rammed by the Swedish liner Stockholm off Nantucket, Mass. on July 25, 1956, and sank. About 50 people died in the collision, 45 of them on the Andrea Doria.

Although badly damaged, the Stockholm survived the collision and her crew were able to rescue many of the Andrea Doria's passengers. The Stockholm is still sailing today, as the cruise ship Astoria, operated by Cruise & Maritime Voyages. I saw her in Bergen earlier this year!

I have a passing or casual interest but know of a few that specialize in this type of collectible. A niche that crosses over between collectors with a passion for shipwreck artifacts and paper money collectors. Proving provenance is paramount particularly when a hoard is involved. Prices vary depending on availability and overall significance of the event.

Awesome links and comments from fellow members. &👍

I can still remember the newspaper pictures of the sinking of the Andrea Doria.

The Coin Vault is the numismatic equivalent of the Home Shopping Network. You can bet whatever they are selling has been marked up by at least 500 percent.

The collision happened a year before I was born, but I read the book when I was 11 or 12. Very memorable.

Interesting to know the Stockholm is still in service.

A friend has bought and sold a couple of them. Had one at ANA. That is a monster hunk of plastic.
