NACA64A315 aerofoil section

Hi all,
Hopefully this is in the correct part of the forum, couldn't think of a better place for it...

Part of a uni project I'm doing requires the use of the NACA64A315 aerofoil section however I can neither find a picture nor the data points for this aerofoil.

I've tried Abbott's "Theory of Airfoil Sections" and the UIUC Airfoil Coordinates Database (http://www.ae.uiuc.edu/m-selig/ads/coord_database.html) but neither have turned up a result.

Irritatingly Abbott has A215 and A415 so I presume A315 will be somewhere in between?

If anyone has a link or a reference that could point me in the right direction that would be fantastic.

Might be wrong but don't the numbers and letters after the NACA describe the aerofoil section in themselves? Aren't there a set of equations that they go into to get the shape with the A refering to a standard profile?
