Description:
Gem 1908 Indian Five
Nice Color and Eye Appeal
1908 $5 MS65 NGC. CAC. Bela Lyon Pratt's innovative incuse Indian Head design was introduced on the half eagle in 1908, with a reported mintage of 577,845 pieces. The issue is available in high grade, and enjoys great popularity with first-year type collectors. The date becomes scarce at the Gem level, and NGC has certified only 21 coins in higher numeric grades(11/10).
The present coin is a sharply struck Gem, with some lack of definition apparent on the eagle's wing, due to incomplete detail on the die (all 1908 half eagles show this weakness). The lustrous, greenish-gold surfaces display strong highlights of rose color. Eye appeal is outstanding.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28DE, PCGS# 8510)
