Gem Matte Proof 1915 Indian Quarter Eagle1915 $2 1/2 PR65 NGC. The 1915 is considered by most specialists to be the key date in the matte proof series from 1908 through 1915. Only 100 proofs were struck (the lowest in the series), minus an unknown number that were melted in early 1916. While other estimates have placed the numbers of survivors between 15 and 20 pieces, we believe the actual number to be higher, somewhere in the neighborhood of 45 to 55 coins.
This example features soft lemon-yellow surfaces with only a few tiny contact marks and stray hairlines that limit the grade. Visually appealing and well struck, this piece possesses both technical quality and aesthetic merit, always a highly sought after combination. This is a rare opportunity for the specialist to acquire the key date in this significant series at a small premium over what the most "common" issue will sell for. Population: 7 in 65, 9 finer (9/01). (NGC ID# 289P, PCGS# 7964)
