    Matte PR64 1915 Quarter Eagle
    Last Proof Year of the Series

    1915 $2 1/2 PR64 PCGS. CAC. The year 1915 saw the last of the regular-issue matte proofs of the still relatively new Saint-Gaudens and Pratt designs, although both the matte and Satin/Roman finish textures met with only middling acceptance, at best, among the collector community. Then, as now, many collectors were unwilling to accept change readily, and the mintage for the final-year 1915 was only 100 pieces, the low for the series. The matte proofs are, nonetheless, highly prized today by numismatists. This last-year PR64 quarter eagle shows deep, even granularity on surfaces that are a light brownish color. Plenty of appeal remains, although the grade is determined by a few faint shiny spots on the high points of obverse devices, and a few minor contact marks evident on each side when examined with a loupe. Population: 11 in 64, 11 finer (9/12).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 289P, PCGS# 7964)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
