Legend Rare Coin Auctions Auction The Regency Auction 40 Aug-2020 This is by far one of the nicest MS 1915-S Saints we have ever seen! No question this coin is closer to MS67 than MS66! Keep in mind, these do not come looking as great as commoner 1924's. Exciting surfaces are superior to most. Only when using a strong glass can you find some microscopic ticks widely scattered around in tiny groups. For a 15-S the surfaces are seriously above average in terms of BOTH cleanliness and texture they are a slight satiny texture. We actually grade the reverse a full MS67! This is NOT a "dirty" or rugged looking coin. The luster is strong and glows from all over. Both sides are an even deeper gold color. There are NO stains or discolorations. Miss Liberty and the details are frosty and are very well struck. The eye appeal is fantastic! PCGS 244, NGC 171 CAC 19. PCGS has graded just 6 coins in MS66+ with NONE higher. The last PCGS CAC piece to sell in auction brought $36,000 in January 2020 in over the top frenzied bidding. That was no fluke, there had not been one for sale in auction since 2012. and in April 2020 a regular MS66 (no +) brought $16,000. The coin offered here has been off the market for many years. If you are a Saint Collector this is a really SUPERB fresh piece. It WILL be a highlight of ANY GEM set. Good luck! Cert. Number 39730607 PCGS # 9168
