Description:
1908 PR66 Indian Quarter Eagle
First Year of the Matte Finish
1908 $2 1/2 PR66 NGC. The novel matte or sandblast finish for proofs began in 1908. Mint records indicate 236 quarter eagles were struck, and it is possible that half that many survive today, making it the most "available" date in the series. The word "available" must be placed in quotes, however, as 118 proofs is a minuscule number compared to the number of collectors who would like to own one. This year has a characteristic khaki-brown color, a finish almost never seen on other matte proof dates. This example has that expected deep color. The surfaces are seemingly free from post-striking impairments. The only disturbances are a pair of tiny planchet flakes in the left reverse field that are clearly of prestriking origin, as the sandblast finish covers them. A pronounced wire rim encircles each side. Census: 40 in 66, 27 finer (5/11).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 289G, PCGS# 7957)
