1915 Indian $10 Eagle Proof 65 NGC. Only 75 proof eagles
were struck in 1915 and it has been variously estimated
that between 10 and 15 pieces exist today. Breen (1977)
notes that the issue is "extremely rare and that
just a few survive. Many are rumored to have been melted
in 1916-17." Akers only recorded 11 appearances
at public auction during all the decades he surveyed
for his work on this series. There was a single appearance
at a Stacks auction 3/2008 where an identically graded
specimen sold for 75K. The last 1915 Proof Eagle to
appear in a Heritage Rare Coin Auctions was 20 years
ago. The present specimen is a major find and one that
may not be repeated for a long time.
This one is sold.
