Lustrous 1909 Indian Five, MS66

1909 $5 MS66 PCGS. The year 1909 is important as the only year that Indian half eagles were coined at four different mints. Considered among the common dates in the series, the 1909 is seen only slightly less often than the 1909-D, and it is often chosen for type collections. Even as a common date, Gems are rare and Premium Gems, such as the piece offered here, are very rare. In Indian Gold Coins of the 20th Century, Michael Fuljenz writes: "This will prove to be an easy date for most collectors to locate with the exception of perfectionists who seek a coin better than MS65. In this case, the 1909 will be a very elusive member of the Indian Half Eagle set."
The bold strike, exceptional surfaces, and soft, frosty mint luster create an incredible aesthetic presentation. A minuscule diagonal mark on the cheek is a convenient marker to track the provenance of this important half eagle. Both sides have a lovely blend of light yellow, pale blue, and vibrant rose. Population: 8 in 66, 0 finer (11/10).
Ex: Superior (1/2004), lot 907, which realized $18,400.
From The Jim O'Neal Collection of $5 Indians.
