An exceptional coin for the grade, this one came to us from an estate that was put away in the early 1970s. At that time, the collector found and purchased a superb original set of these Panama Pacific coins in the original copper frame. They have only been submitted to the services once. We note the usual swirl lines from die polishing in the fields, and the surfaces are well preserved. Full luster throughout, and this is certainly one of the better examples of the Octagonal $50 we have seen. NGC notes in their Population Report that 109 have been so graded, with just 17 graded higher. Light golden toning on both sides, and one that any collector will long cherish. <BR>Estimated Value $35,000-UP.
