    Description

    Elusive Final-Year PR64 1915 Five Dollar

    1915 $5 PR64 NGC. The final-year 1915 half eagle matte proofs are far and away the rarest of the 1908-15 proof series, struck to the extent of a meager 75 pieces. The average grade of certified survivors is only PR64.8, pointing to the conditionally difficult nature of the issue. This near-Gem proof boasts yellow-gold color that is surprisingly light throughout. The strike is sharp in the peripheral areas as well as the centers. The obverse appears to grade a bit higher than the reverse, which displays a long, thin hairline through the ATE of STATES to the first A of AMERICA. Census: 9 in 64, 15 finer (5/11).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 28E9, PCGS# 8546)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
