1915-S 50C Panama-Pacific -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. AU. The 1915-S Pan-Pac half dollar was the only commemorative silver coin produced for the famous San Francisco exposition. Other issues included a gold dollar, quarter eagle, and two fifty-dollar coins in round and octagonal formats. A total of 27,135 of these half dollars were sold, making the 1915-S a popular series scarcity. Dappled violet-gray toning covers each side, where minor grade-defining wisps are apparent. Detail remains strong despite a hint of friction over the highest points. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
