    1915-S Indian Eagle, MS63
    Elusive, Low-Mintage Issue

    1915-S $10 MS63 PCGS. World War I was underway in Europe in 1915, limiting overseas trade and reducing demand for large denomination gold coins in this country. Accordingly, the San Francisco Mint only struck 59,000 Indian eagles that year, the second lowest S-mint production of the series. The coins were released into circulation and few were saved for numismatic purposes. Mike Fuljenz reports the 1915-S is difficult to locate in all grades above AU55 today, and examples in MS63 condition are "quite scarce."

    This impressive Select specimen displays sharp definition on most design elements, but just a touch of softness is evident on the eagle's shoulder. The vivid orange-gold surfaces are lightly marked for the grade and both sides radiate vibrant mint luster with outstanding eye appeal. Population: 41 in 63 (2 in 63+), 33 finer (3/19).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 28H6, PCGS# 8879)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
