Description:
1908 Indian Half Eagle, MS65
Popular First-Year Type Coin
1908 $5 MS65 PCGS. Bela Lyon Pratt's innovative incuse Indian design was introduced on the half eagle and quarter eagle in 1908, making the date an important one for series enthusiasts and type collectors alike. A substantial mintage of 577,845 pieces was accomplished and many examples were saved by contemporary collectors and the general public for their novelty value. As a result, the 1908 is a reasonably available issue in Mint State grades, slightly scarce at the MS65 level, and rare in finer grades.

The present coin is an attractive Gem, with well-detailed design elements and vibrant mint luster. The well-preserved orange and reddish-gold surfaces show only minor signs of contact and eye appeal is outstanding. PCGS has graded only 20 numerically finer examples (10/13).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28DE, PCGS# 8510)
