A magnificent Gem or better set of 1915-S Panama-Pacific ... (5 Coins)
Extraordinary Quality Five-Piece 1915-S Panama-Pacific SetA magnificent Gem or better set of 1915-S Panama-Pacific Commemoratives, Half through Fifty Dollar.
Half Dollar MS66 NGC. Lovely amber and turquoise toning frames essentially brilliant centers. A solitary reeding mark to the left of the eagle precludes Superb status.
Gold Dollar MS66 PCGS. A satiny, ultra frosty Gem with delicate hints of pastel blue and lilac patina.
Quarter Eagle MS67 NGC. Impeccably preserved and boasting a bright, satiny sheen that far eclipses most examples seen.
Fifty Dollar Round NGC MS65 NGC. The Pan-Pac Fifty is one of the most beautiful coins ever minted and it is rife with symbolic meaning. Stuck on the eve of America's involvement in the First World War, the Greek helmet is pushed back on Liberty's head in a ready but not fully combative posture. The owl on the reverse signifies watchfulness. This is an absolutely splendid example with reddish-golden surfaces that are virtually unmarked and are endowed with satiny luster that is especially vibrant.
Fifty Dollar Octagonal MS65 NGC. The net mintage of the octagonal Fifty Dollar is slightly larger its round counterpart (645 vs. 483 pieces), probably because of the novelty of the eight-sided design. There is no disputing the effect of the dazzling luster or the appealing reddish-golden color of this Gem. While light facial marks are noticed under a glass, these positive qualities were obviously taken into consideration on the final grade.
Accompanying this lot is the original case, cardboard box, and card of issue. The black leatherette case opens to display a purple velvet-lined interior with slots for each of the five denominations. The box and case have substantial value of their own, as most holders (and nearly all the boxes) have been discarded or damaged over the years. (#7452)
