VERY FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE $2.00 1902 ISSUE PROOF MADE FOR DISPLAY AT THE 1915 PANAMA-PACIFIC EXPOSITION. ONLY THREE TO FIVE OF EACH VALUE ARE BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN PRODUCED.

The $2.00 in the set of 1902-03 Issue Panama-Pacific proofs sold for $26,000 hammer (vs. $16,800 Scott value) in the Brody sale held by Shreves was notably more toned than the example offered here.
