    Rare Final-Year 1915 Matte Proof Quarter Eagle

    1915 $2 1/2 PR 63 NGC. The unpopularity of the matte style of proofing among the public forced the Philadelphia Mint to discontinue production of gold coins after 1915. The present issue, of which only 100 pieces were produced, boasts the lowest mintage in the Indian quarter eagle series. With an extant population of perhaps 24-25 pieces, the 1915 also has legitimate claim to the title of rarest matte proof issue in this series. The color is a deep, rich, olive-tan shade. The surfaces present a virtually blemish-free appearance to the naked eye, and there are also no singularly mentionable distractions under a loupe. A sharply struck, conservatively graded example that belongs in an advanced gold collection. (NGC ID# 289P, PCGS# 7964)

    You gave me several alternatives and explained the pros and cons of each. I concluded that you were someone I could trust and that you would do a good job for me. And you sure did!
