Description

Gem 1908 Indian Half Eagle

1908 $5 MS65 PCGS. Among the goals of President Roosevelt was to replace all of the Liberty designs on U.S. gold coins, which he called "atrociously hideous." Famous sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens was tapped to provide new renditions, but he died in 1907 after completing only the ten and twenty dollar denominations. The undeterred President then turned to Bela Lyon Pratt, who created nearly identical designs for the remaining two circulating series. The devices exhibited recessed relief, which meant that the fields received the brunt of coin-to-coin contact. The present crisply struck Gem, however, has only minimal field marks that are only visible upon magnification. Predominantly deep peach-gold with hints of olive toning on the Indian.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28DE, PCGS# 8510)
