A unique pair of a physical tickets recovered from the S.S. Central America shipwreck for Second Cabin from Havana to Aspinwall and a passenger receipt for Cristobal de Losada to travel back the other direction from Aspinwall to Havana in First Cabin. The receipt clearly shows "Steamer Central America" in manuscript on a United States Mail Steamship preprinted form for September 3, 1857. Found in the Purser's safe in 2014 and carefully restored, there were only a couple of these tickets in good enough condition to be restored.
