    Pleasing MS 61 Pan-Pac $50 Round

    1915-S Panama-Pacific 50 Dollar Round MS 61. Although 1,500 of these were minted originally for sale at the Panama-Pacific Exposition, the selling price of the coins ($100 each) was so high, that fewer than a third were sold. The unsold balance was returned to the Mint for melting, resulting in a net mintage of only 483 rounds. The surfaces on this piece are really quite free from contact marks. But close examination reveals a few light hairlines with a subsequent loss of luster. Still, a lovely example of this remarkable coin. (NGC ID# BYHP, PCGS# 7451)
