    Among the Finest Certified 1915 Quarter Eagles, MS66

    1915 $2 1/2 MS66 NGC. The 1915, with the fourth highest business strike mintage of the series (606,000 pieces), is a plentiful issue. Several thousand pieces have been certified by NGC and PCGS in AU through near-Gem. A sharp drop in the population occurs between MS64 and MS65, and Premium Gems are rare, with only four pieces graded by both services, and none finer. In this regard, there have been, to the best of our knowledge, no appearances of MS66 or higher 1915 quarter eagles at public auction in the recent past.
    The Premium Gem we offer in this lot displays relatively bright apricot-gold luster. The surfaces are exceptionally well preserved, and reveal a few unobtrusive handling marks in the raised, exposed fields, particularly on the reverse. This coin exudes great overall eye appeal.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 7KRC, PCGS# 7948)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
