    NGC 1915 PR 64. The 1915 double eagle has always been a very popular coin when it has been offered for sale in public auction. Not only is it rare in the absolute sense with no more than 30 pieces known today out of an impressively low mintage of only 50 coins, but it also is a widely recognized condition rarity as well.
    The surfaces of this coin are similar to the PCGS Proof 66 1914 above with its coarser grain finish and lighter color. The only mark on the coin that we can see is a minute one on the kneecap of Liberty. Otherwise, the coin derives its grade from light hairlining. This hairlining is not heavy enough, though, to obscure or dampen the myriad sparkling dots of individual luster of the sandblasted surfaces.
    While not the finest known, this coin is actually tied with ten other pieces for second finest certified (June) and is exceeded only by one PCGS Proof 65 (see next lot). This statement says a great deal about the average quality of this rare issue.
    This impressive auction gives the buyer of matte proof gold a choice of two 1915 proof twenties. We cannot remember the last time an auction offered more than one example of this very rare date.
