Description:
1915-S Pan-Pac Quarter Eagle, MS67
Spectacular Surfaces, Tied for Finest at PCGS
1915-S $2 1/2 Panama-Pacific Quarter Eagle MS67 PCGS. Many collectors fail to realize it, but the 1915-S Panama-Pacific quarter eagle design encapsulates the work and careers of two U.S. Mint designers, Chief Engraver Charles E. Barber (the obverse) and Assistant Engraver George T. Morgan (the reverse). Morgan was far more talented, being employed by the U.S. Mint in 1876 at the age of 31 from his native Birmingham, England. It was presumed that William Barber (1807-1879), father of Charles and chief engraver at the time Morgan was hired, would soon retire, but the elder Barber served until his death. His son Charles (1840-1917) would be appointed Chief Engraver upon his father's death, even though he was apparently disliked by Mint officials. George T. Morgan would have to wait until 1917 to finally become chief engraver himself upon Charles Barber's death, when Morgan was 72 years old.
The Pan-Pac quarter eagle design is also unusual in that it is better-than-usual work for Charles Barber, and rather pedestrian for Morgan. Even Gem Pan-Pac quarter eagles are in hot demand, but this Superb Gem is one of only 24 at PCGS, with none finer (10/12). The surface preservation is spectacular on this coin, free of even the tiny ticks that usually appear on lower-grade examples, and the strike is full throughout, also seldom seen on this issue. The attractive orange-red color is an added plus.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26HK, PCGS# 7450)
