Description 1915-S $2 1/2 Panama-Pacific Quarter Eagle MS66 NGC. Responsibility for the design of this commemorative quarter eagle issue was originally assigned to sculptor Evelyn Longman of New York, but either due to her illness or a decision by Assistant Secretary of the Treasury William Moburn (alleged by Walter Breen and Anthony Swiatek in their 1981 Encyclopedia of United States Gold and Silver Commemorative Coins), the designs were actually executed by Mint personnel Charles Barber and George Morgan. This Premium Gem example of the type shows mark-free surfaces and lovely pale gold coloration. The strike definition is exceptional, fully bringing up all elements of the classically-inspired design. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $6462.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
