1915 "S-Less" Pan-Pac Gold Dollar, Second Impression, Ex: Farouk

1915 G$1 Panama-Pacific Gold Dollar, Judd-1965 (previously listed as Judd-1793A2), Pollock-2032, 2033, R.7, 8, PR62 NGC. Regular die trial for the Panama-Pacific gold dollar, without the S mintmark. Struck in gold with a reeded edge. A group of nine "S-less" Pan-Pac gold dollars were offered in New England's 1979 ANA Sale, seven with a reeded edge and two with a plain edge. Each coin was pedigreed to King Farouk and had apparently been together for decades with museum wax on some of the pieces. The coins were also cataloged in the order in which they were struck. Obviously, at some point documentation existed that gave the emission sequence, but unfortunately, over the past 24 years it has been lost. This piece is listed in the New England catalog as the second impression. It is identifiable as such, and as lot 1367 by a small speck of dark toning on the rim just below the 5 in the date. The striking details are extremely sharp, as one would expect from a multiply struck gold coin. Close examination shows that there are several slide marks across the worker's face. Some spotty verdigris is also seen on each side. A high wire rim also encircles both obverse and reverse, as noted in the 1979 sale. A satiny proof variant, the surfaces are medium yellow-gold in color.
Ex: Palace Collection/ King Farouk (Sotheby's, 2/54), lot 288; 1979 ANA Sale (NERCA, 7/79), lot 1367, where it brought $4,000; Louis M. Sklar. (#62268) (NGC ID# 395S, PCGS# 62268)
