US 20 Dollar Gold Liberty Coin
1857 SS Central America
So there’s the ‘rest of the story.’ A coin that started in the Gold fields of California 162 years ago, and went to the bottom of the ocean for over a century, creating a Wall Street Panic and three year Depression in America, that resulted in the creation of the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS). This led over time to the ABS LED lighting Rules and Certifications for all Marine facilities and ships on all the oceans of the world. And now, what you see here, it’s become part of an ‘App’ on the Internet that you can buy with a ‘click’ of your mouse. But - this is NOT just a coin. This is a piece of history that’s been places, and done things, and changed the world of LED lighting fixtures.
