Description:
Original Panama-Pacific Commemorative Set With Case of Issue
An original set of 1915-S Panama-Pacific Commemoratives, Half Dollar through Fifty Dollar including case of issue.

Half Dollar MS67 NGC. Attractive champagne-gray and reddish-gold patina overlays each side with olive accents at the peripheral areas. A couple of tiny reeding marks are noted in the left obverse and reverse fields, these being hardly noticeable due the depth of the patina.

Gold Dollar MS66 NGC. A satiny, ultra frosty Gem with delicate hints of pastel rose and mint-green color.

Quarter Eagle MS66 NGC. Impeccably preserved and boasting a bright, satiny sheen that far eclipses most examples seen. A couple of tiny abrasions are noted under the C of PACIFIC on the obverse.

Fifty Dollar Round NGC MS64 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. A couple of small marks on the helmet limit the grade to MS64.

Fifty Dollar Octagonal MS63 NGC. The net mintage of the octagonal Quintuple Eagle 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 yellow-golden color of this specimen. While light facial marks and an abrasion on the owl's wing are noticed under a glass, these qualities were obviously taken into consideration on the final grade.

Accompanying this lot is the original case and card of issue. The black leatherette case opens to display a purple velvet-lined interior with die cut openings for each of the five denominations. The box and case have substantial value of their own, as most holders have been discarded or damaged over the years. An important opportunity for the astute collector.(#7452) (Registry values: P7)
