August 26, 2015—Bill Abernethy, who was first to report finding a major Rotated Die error on a 2015-W U.S. Marshals Service 225th Anniversary $5 proof gold piece back in July, has had it certified and graded by Professional Coin Grading Service of Newport Beach, CA. PCGS graded the coin as PR69DCAM. The coin was struck with a 68 degree counter clockwise rotated die, which was rounded up to 70 degrees by PCGS. Up until just about a week ago it was the only modern U.S. gold coin known with a major rotation. It remains the only specimen known for the US Marshals Service gold coin.
