1915-S Panama-Pacific Gold $50 Octagonal. NGC graded MS-63. Lovely rich golden toning. Minor black streaks at 6:00 near the edges. A very popular U.S. gold coin. Only 645 minted. To most collectors who see one of these for the first time, they are dumbstruck by its unbelievably impressive size and vivid designs. Also, the nature of the luster is eye-catching. Even when not sizzling gem quality, the textured effect combined with the unique allegorical design can create quite a stir. The reverse and obverse centers play host to a brilliance and originality always appreciated by the stronger buyers. In short, a choice lovely coin, one that certainly meets the qualifications for the grade. Who can say where this one will go. Nothing like it either before or since. A masterful design by an artist by the name of Robert Aitken (PCGS # 7452) .
Estimated Value $60,000 - 65,000.

Realized $69,000
