1915-S Panama-Pacific Exposition $50 Gold, Octagonal NGC MS-64 CAC
A superb CAC example of this classic U.S. issue from 1915. Minted in San Francisco, the Octagonal Slug was issued to commemorate the Panama Pacific Exposition. The coin is well struck with some original gold luster present. Only 645 coins were minted of this issue in the Octagonal format, with less suriving over the past 95 years. The high face value, the even higher issue price and the limited availability has ensured an aura surrounding the $50 pieces from the set. To put things in perspective in 1915: a new car cost $390 and a new house just $3,395. The price of gold was fixed at $20.67 an ounce, and the Boston Red Sox won the World Series.
Sold $88,000.00
