1915 $20 PR65 NGC. In this final year of production of the matte proofing process, only 50 proof Double Eagles were struck....
The surfaces of this Gem coin have a rich greenish-khaki color and show a coarse-grain finish. There are a few tiny distinctive marks on each side that could serve as identifiers for pedigree purposes. On the obverse, a thin, diagonal mark is seen on Liberty's right (facing) knee. On the reverse, there are a couple of almost hidden marks within the eagle's wing feathers, and a microscopic abrasion near the top of the sun. How many years will pass until another opportunity will present itself to purchase a coin of comparable quality?
