The 1915 issues were the final year of regular-issue proof gold production, due to diminished collector demand. Only 100 proof quarter eagles were coined, just a fraction of which survive today. The 1915 has long been considered the key issue among proof Indian quarter eagles. Garrett and Guth comment that "the 1915 issue has earned its reputation as a rarity with few offerings and constant demand." They add that "the 1915 quarter eagle Proof has always commanded attention, with a tiny mintage of just 100 pieces. Also being the final year of issue, precious few of these coins remain in gem grades to satisfy collector demand."
In Heritage auctions since 1993, a total of 143 proof Indian quarter eagles have appeared for sale, but just 11 are dated 1915, and only one of the 1915 proofs carried a PR67 grade. Similarly, only 48 of the 610 proof Indian quarter eagle submissions certified by NGC are dated 1915, only seven of which grade PR67 or finer. The data clearly highlights the importance of this particular date. Census: 6 in 67, 1 finer (6/09).
