Notes:

"1915-P&D are two of the most common dates of this series. Both come with nice luster and smooth surfaces, but the 1915-D is not normally struck as well as the 1915-P. Surprisingly, the 1915-D shows four coins graded MS 67 in the pop report, whereas 1915-P has none [as of 1999]."

The finest Uncirculated examples graded by PCGS are 7 MS-66's.

The finest Proof examples graded by PCGS are 7 PR-67's.
