Lot Details
1915-S $10
Unusually high quality for the date collector as the 1915-S has always been known as a key date and few are known in Mint State conditions, far fewer at the Select and Choice level. Gems are virtually non-existent. Glorious orange-gold luster throughout and boasting a solid strike from the dies. The important fields and devices on the obverse are pleasing and free of most visible bagmarks. Rather well struck and the appearance and quality are just as they should be on an Indian eagle of this era.
From a mintage of just 59,000 pieces for the year, perhaps only 500 remain today, the vast majority show circulation as no large hoards of Mint State pieces survived. The balance of the issue was melted in the 1930s. While fraught with rarities the Indian eagle series can be completed with enough time, money and patience. Dates and mints range from common to prized rarities, the 1933 eagle for instance, but all can be obtained. This 1915-S is one of the rarities that can be found with patience, and this handsome coin will please any advanced specialist. (PCGS 8879) Choice Uncirculated
