    Beautiful Gem 1915-S Panama-Pacific Quarter Eagle

    1915-S $2 1/2 Panama-Pacific Quarter Eagle MS66 PCGS. Another scarce and high-end commemorative coin from the Wiseman Collection, this Premium Gem is exceeded by only 16 specimens at PCGS (8/06). The Pan-Pac quarter eagle is, in fact, scarce in all grades, in part due to its limited mintage. Four dollars--the issue price--was a considerable sum to tie up in 1915, and sales of the coin, bracketed as they were by the half dollar, dollar, and fifty dollar pieces, were slow. Many surviving examples are also softly struck on the headdress of Columbia or on the head and neck of the hippocampus will lower the grade. This beautiful example has mellow, satiny luster over the golden-orange surfaces, with the characteristic raised die-polishing lines showing clearly on the reverse. The strike is adequate, although not bold, on the aforementioned areas.
    From The Troy Wiseman Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# BYLP, PCGS# 7450)
