Description:
Exceptional MS65 1908 Indian Half Eagle
1908 $5 MS65 PCGS. After 68 years of continuous production, the old Liberty design was retired beginning in 1908. Its replacement was radically different in concept and layout, and came as quite a surprise to collectors at the time (Samuel Chapman being the most vocal opponent of the new coins). The obverse featured a realistic portrait of an American Indian, and the design was sunken beneath the level of the fields--the half eagle and similarly designed quarter eagle being the first incuse designs in U.S. coinage. Undoubtedly, the new design caught the attention of both collectors and non-collectors throughout the country, and as a result quite a few 1908 half eagles were saved as the first of type. This is a splendid example that has fully defined features on each side. The mint luster is smooth and lightly frosted with subtly variegated lilac and rose patina. There are none of the usual surface distractions that this design type is so well known for. Housed in a first-generation holder.
From The Gold Rush Collection.(#8510) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28DE, PCGS# 8510)
