Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: As the mintage would suggest, the 1915 Philadelphia issue is moderately scarce in all grades. It is similar in rarity to the 1914 issue and is usually found in MS 60 to MS 63. Choice examples become quite scarce and at the Gem level the date becomes very rare and valuable. Just a single example of the 1915 Double Eagle has been graded by NGC as MS 66. That coin last sold for $54,625 in January 2009. Most seen are well struck and bag marks are usually minimal for the denomination. The Smithsonian collection contains two coins that would grade MS 64.
