DESCRIPTION Gorgeous Gem Uncirculated 1915 Indian EagleCondition Rarity PCGS/CAC MS-65+ Quality1915 Indian Eagle. MS-65+ (PCGS). CAC.
This is a breathtakingly beautiful example of Augustus Saint-Gaudens' Indian eagle design type of 1907 to 1933. Both sides are fully struck with razor sharp definition from the rims to the centers. Bathed in a blend of softly frosted luster and warm medium gold patina, the surfaces are exceptionally smooth to fully justify the coveted MS-65+ grade. The Philadelphia Mint struck 351,000 circulation strikes ten-dollar gold eagles in 1915, a generous total for the Indian series that helps to explain why this is one of the more readily obtainable issues of its type. The 1915 is not the most common Indian eagle in Mint State, however, for it is rarer than the 1907 No Periods, 1910, 1910-D, 1911, 1912, 1913, 1926 and 1932. Even so, enough examples are extant in the MS-60 to MS-63 grade range that the 1915 is a popular and affordable type issue at the lowest reaches of Uncirculated preservation. Near-Gems in MS-64 are scarce, while both the issue and the Indian eagle as a type are rare in Gem Mint State. This is one of the finest examples known to PCGS, and it is a coin that do would justice to an advanced gold cabinet.PCGS# 8878.
