No one can afford the Pan Pac!

I try to keep my favorites in the realm of something I might be able to buy.
Huh? The Pan Pac half, while not cheap, isn't even close to the most expensive classic commemorative half.
My votes are:
1) Oregon Trail
2) Bay Bridge
3) San Diego
4) Pan Pac
I want to say Maryland for my #1 as well because I was born and raised here but it's just such an ugly portrait of Calvert. Regardless I have been looking for a nice one.
Regardless our state flag and shield is the best bar none!
I chose Maryland first as I am proud of my states history and being one of the first states. I have traveled across this country sea to sea north to south. A many nice places I've visited here and over seas. There's no place like home!
This is place where you can travel 20 miles from center and be entertained by history. When I was a kid Maryland was known as" America in miniature."
The state has so much to offer....and has given our nation our National Anthem .
Yeah you may say I'm a tad bit proud ,no less than any other who calls home ......home!
Classic commemorative gold is a whole new ball game.
The Pan Pac half is also a California coin; the event took place in San Francisco.
The other is the 1892, and I found it in a "bargain bin" for $10 at a coin show. I believe it's been cleaned, but it is an MS details quality coin.
Maryland is very nice, but in most areas there, I had the feeling someone was looking over my shoulder. Maryland seemed overpopulated to me.
You can locate many fine examples at reasonable prices.
Check out the counterstamped ones sometime. They're stamped with a state name and a number as part of a promotion conducted at the time by (IIRC) the Daughters of the Confederacy. They come with stamps for every state in the Confederacy. Such a great deal of history behind those coins!
Oregon Trail...Lincoln...Roanoke...Texas...Boone...Stone Mountain
I think these all have artistry and history going for them.
