    Impressive 1915-S Panama-Pacific 50 Dollar Octagonal MS63

    1915-S $50 Panama-Pacific 50 Dollar Octagonal MS63 PCGS. Designed by Robert Aitken, the 1915-S Panama-Pacific 50 Dollar commemorative "slugs" was produced in both round and octagonal format. Both types have an original mintage of 1,500 pieces plus several assay specimens, but only 645 octagonal examples were sold. These octagonal pieces add dolphins about the borders as a symbol of America's desire to keep the Panama Canal open throughout the term of the Great War. Always an impressive issue, this Select representative is appealing from both a technical and aesthetic standpoint. Both sides display vibrant matte-like luster and appealing golden coloration, with just a few wispy blemishes on the major devices that are nearly unavoidable on these massive strikings.
    From The Barry Donnell Collection. (#7452) (NGC ID# BYHP, PCGS# 7452)

    Weight: 83.59 grams
