Description

Panama-Pacific International Exposition
Five-Slot Shreve & Co. Copper Frame

Shreve & Co. Copper and Class Panama-Pacific Coin Frame. This lot contains no coins, but it does include an original Panama-Pacific commemorative coin frame. The hand-hammered copper frame is 10" by 8" and in excellent condition with its inserts, glass, screws, and velvet interior intact. The base of the holder is inscribed SHREVE & CO / SAN FRANCISCO / MAKERS. Experts estimate that only 30 or so Shreve & Co. Copper frame holders exist today with a single slot for each of the five different Panama-Pacific varieties (the half dollar, gold dollar, quarter eagle, and round and octagonal fifty dollar). Perhaps another 25 short-set holders (without the two fifty dollar varieties) are known, along with perhaps six sets with two of each variety, intended to display both the obverse and reverse. An informative 2005 Stack's brochure accompanies the lot.
