Description

Highly Lustrous Gem 1908-S Half Eagle

1908-S $5 MS65 NGC. The 1908-S is a scarce and popular issue in the Indian half eagle series with an impressively low mintage of only 82,000 pieces. Apparently quite a few Mint State examples were set aside at the time of issue as Gem coins are even occasionally available. It is also one of the better produced issues in the series with strong striking definition and coruscating mint frost the norm on high grade examples. This is a bright, lustrous coin that shows strong detailing on all the design elements. Only the slightest surface imperfections are noted on either side of this lovely Gem. Population: 10 in 65, 12 finer (6/04).
From The Sarasota Collection. (#8512) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 65K3, PCGS# 8512)
