I found the following daguerreotype linked to the U.S.S. CENTRAL AMERICA's sinking.
Regrettably, the price is expensive. This could be interesting to The E-Sylum readers.
Coins and ingots recovered from the wreck of the S.S. Central America are now dispersed in the numismatic market. This daguerreotype is only of tangential interest - it is of one of the survivors of the disaster, banker Darius Ogden Mills and his sister. The eBay seller believes "more is more" and has piled on the text with a shovel. Follow the link to devour it all. But the part that caught my eye was this note about a possible film of the S.S. Central America story.
The film rights for Gary Kinder’s bestselling novel ‘SHIP OF GOLD’ were sold to Warner Brothers for $800,000.00 and Kinder has mentioned he’s writing the screenplay so we can now look forward to a film adaptation of the greatest and most impactful shipwreck in American history.
I have no idea where this information came from, or how old or accurate it is. I really enjoyed reading the book, and would look forward to a film. Do any of our readers have more information on this
