1915-S Panama-Pacific Exposition $50. Octagonal. MS-63 (PCGS).

Lovely Choice Unc Octagonal Panama-Pacific Fifty-Dollar Gold

Vivid reddish-orange color to most areas, the central reverse is a bit more boldly patinated in a light-rose hue. Wispy handling marks do little more than define the grade, and most are so small and to be singularly inconspicuous to the eye. Well defined, as befits the type, with the impressive eye appeal that can only be found in a solid Choice or finer quality example of this type. From a net mintage of just 645 pieces, and a key issue to completion of a set of classic gold commemorative coins, as such.
