    1915-S Panama-Pacific Quarter Eagle
    Very Scarce Any Finer, MS66+

    1915-S $2 1/2 Panama-Pacific Quarter Eagle MS66+ NGC. The 1915-S Panama-Pacific quarter eagle has one of the smallest distributions in the classic commemorative series. Only 6,749 of the 10,017 coins manufactured were sold to collectors and fair-goers, the rest being melted. Many of these gold quarter eagles were saved in high grades. After all, they were souvenirs from a memorable exposition. The vast majority of coins were sold individually in small paper envelopes for $4 each. It has been suggested that approximately 300 examples were distributed in five-coin sets. Another small handful, as few as 12 and at most 20 pieces, were included in the six to 10 double sets sold to wealthy visitors and/or banking institutions.

    This Premium Gem derives from one of those extremely rare and highly sought-after sets. Having been encased for more than 100 years, it should come as little surprise that the surfaces are so exquisitely preserved, very nearly meeting the criteria for a Superb Gem grade assessment. Bright mint frost emanates from each side, featuring pleasing apricot-gold color. The strike is strongly rendered. Myriad raised polish lines appear throughout, suggestive of fresh dies. A couple of small flecks on the head of the hippocampus and above Columbia's caduceus are undistracting.
