Description

    PCGS 1915 PR 66. The 1915 is considered by most specialists to be the key date in the matte proof series from 1908 through 1915. Only 100 proofs were struck (the lowest in the series), minus an unknown number that were melted in early 1916. While other estimates have placed the numbers of survivors between 15 and 20 pieces, we believe the actual number to be higher, somewhere in the neighborhood of 45 to 55 coins.
    The surface texture of this 1915 is virtually identical to the PCGS Proof 64 1914 above--a coarse grain matte with deep color. The color, though, is slightly different on this coin, being a couple of shades lighter and seeming to sparkle just a bit more than the previous year. If one looks closely enough and with strong magnification, one notices a couple of microscopically small contact marks (shiny spots) on the Native American's necklace and lower feathers of the headdress. These are so small, however, they really have no noticeable affect on the coin's visual attractiveness or overall desirability. More noticeable, and also of little technical importance, are several streaks of copper alloy. These are mostly seen around the periphery of the reverse, but there are a few seen elsewhere.
    According to current population data (6/94) only 5 other proofs of this date have been so graded by PCGS, and NGC has only certified 2 in Proof 66 (4/94), with none finer by either service. This is a rare opportunity for the specialist to acquire the key date in this significant series at a small premium over what the most "common" issue will sell for. (NGC ID# 289P, PCGS# 7964)
