Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: This date ranks as one the most common for the series before 1920. Large numbers are known in all grades from MS 60 to MS 65. Examples continue to be found in fresh shipments from the European banks. The date usually well struck with ample luster. The 1915–S can be found in Gem condition with relative ease. As with most dates, anything above MS 66 is extremely rare. A single coin has been graded by NGC as MS 67. That coin has not traded at auction.
