Panama remained a part of Colombia until 1903. In 1903, Panama, with the help of the United States, declared its independence. The United States wanted to build the Panama Canal, and Colombia was against the idea. Many in Panama wanted independence, and the United States just "encouraged" the movement. The canal work was begun by the US in 1904.
Estimated Value $4,000 - 5,000.
