Description

Well-Detailed 1915-S Panama-Pacific Fifty Dollar Round

1915-S $50 Panama-Pacific 50 Dollar Round Genuine PCGS. The PCGS number ending in .98 suggests Damage as the reason, or perhaps one of the reasons, that PCGS deemed this coin not gradable. Our in-house graders state the coin has Unc Details with repaired fields and filing on the obverse rim.
The Panama-Pacific Exposition was several years in the planning and public turnout was consistent during the time the exposition was open. Unfortunately, the buildings constructed for this world class fair were almost all torn down after the exposition closed. This leaves us with photographs, a few mementos, and the extraordinary coins to remember this event.
This particular Round fifty dollar apparently suffered some sort of scratching or damage in the left obverse field. The area was smoothed, but it is readily apparent because of the textured fields on these coins. The original finish is impossible to faithfully replicate, so one is left with a smooth, more or less flat field where the smoothing occurred. The obverse rim was filed between 8 and 10 o'clock. Otherwise, the surfaces are bright orange-gold, and the devices are sharply defined throughout. There are minimal abrasions apparent on either side. (NGC ID# BYHP, PCGS# 7451)
