(1915) Panama-Pacific International Exposition Ten-Coin Copper Frame.
This ten-coin frame in copper and glass, designed to hold a double set (obverse and reverse) of the five Panama-Pacific commemorative issues, was created by Shreve & Co., a jeweler's firm that had been in operation from the days of the California gold rush and continues to operate to this day. On the outside, the glass is in pleasing condition, and the copper frame shows only slight bumps at a couple of the corners. The purple velvet, tags, and ribbon are in excellent condition with only the slightest fading, and the back is in solid overall condition as well, though the tab with the ring used to hang the frame is missing. Still, a fascinating piece of numismatic history that displays beautifully.Shipping:

Heritage usually auctions material at the rate of 200-250 lots per hour. On some occasions eBay Live bid software or the Internet may not be able to keep up with the pace of the auction. We recommend placing a realistic absentee bid now as insurance to avoid disappointment. Occasionally the auctioneer may eliminate or reject an eBay Live bid, and the auctioneer may also reopen a lot after the close of the eBay live bidding (usually because we missed an audience bid), and may reject your bid even if it shows you as the winning bidder. By bidding via eBay Live, you agree that Heritage may award the lot to another bidder at its sole discretion under the circumstances described above or any other reasonable circumstances. Since eBay bids are not shown to us until we open the lot on the floor, we treat those bids just like floor bids. In most cases the floor responds before the eBay bid is presented to us, due to Internet lag time, so for consistency we have made it a policy that floor bids are always considered first over tie eBay live bids. Also please note that all Heritage lots purchased through eBay Live carry a 20% Buyer's Premium with a $9 minimum Buyer's Premium. Please make sure you read the Terms and Conditions before you bid. This lot is being auctioned in conjunction with a live floor auction by Heritage Auctions. All final auction and invoice information will be supplied by Heritage Auctions, and all other information should be considered preliminary. Lot:2696Winning Notification and Billing:
