    1915 Indian Quarter Eagle, PR67
    Deep Orange-Gold Finish
    Wonderfully Preserved

    1915 $2 1/2 PR67 PCGS. "This is the final year of Proofs issued for this series. Collector demand had fallen in most years, and Proof gold coinage was halted in 1916 for regular-issue gold denominations." So Garrett and Guth begin their entry for the proof 1915 quarter eagle in Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins, the last quarter eagle entry outside of the commemoratives and patterns sections. They write more at length on the theme:

    "Long considered to be the key date to the Proof series, the 1915 issue has earned its reputation as a rarity with few offerings and constant demand. ... [T]he 1915 quarter eagle Proof has always commanded attention, with a tiny mintage of just 100 pieces. Also, being the final year of issue, precious few of these coins remain in gem grades to satisfy collector demand."

    This Superb Gem survivor, one of just two coins so certified by PCGS with none finer (6/11), is among the most remarkable remaining examples of the date. Both sides are exquisitely preserved with rich orange-gold color. The texture is granular, in accordance with the notes by Garrett and Guth, who state: "The 1915 Indian Head quarter eagles were struck in the identical finish as the 1914 issue, employing the darker and coarser finish to the coins." With its sharp strike and great all-around eye appeal, this absolutely amazing coin deserves a place in the finest of classic gold cabinets.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 289P, PCGS# 7964)
