Description

Beautiful Near-Gem Pan-Pac Octagonal Fifty

1915-S $50 Panama-Pacific 50 Dollar Octagonal MS64 PCGS. Surely the most symbolic coin ever produced by the U.S. Mint, the Pan-Pac fifties showed America (symbolized by Athena) with her helmet in a ready position as we followed the Great War in Europe and contemplated our own possible involvement in that bloody conflagration. Dolphins are positioned in the eight angles of the octagon, symbolizing the continuous water route completed by the Panama Canal. The owl seated on the Ponderosa pine, of course, represents wisdom. The satiny surfaces show only the tiniest abrasions, and those are only visible with magnification. A few small specks of grease were also struck into the obverse at the time of manufacture. A magnificent example of this important 20th century coin. (NGC ID# BYHP, PCGS# 7452)
