High-Grade 1909-D Indian Half Eagle, MS66

1909-D $5 MS66 PCGS. With a mintage of 3.4 million coins, the 1909-D is easily the most plentiful date in the entire Indian half eagle series. Examples are available in nearly any grade desired, up to MS65. Higher-grade coins, such as this Premium Gem, will prove elusive to even the most serious students of the series. In A Handbook of 20th-Century United States Gold Coins 1907-1933, David Akers wrote in 1988: "True gems are genuinely rare and superb (better than MS-65) quality examples are essentially unobtainable." Those words are equally true today, more than 20 years later.
The bold strike shows every design element in exquisite detail. Both sides of this Premium Gem have frosty yellow luster with pale blue and bright rose overtones. Pristine surfaces exhibit only a few trivial marks on the reverse, with none of any substantial help to trace a prior provenance. This piece is different from either of the two MS66 PCGS coins that Jeff Ambio recorded in his revision of the Akers Handbook. It is also the first MS66 example that we have offered in any of our sales. Population: 5 in 66, 0 finer (11/10).
From The Jim O'Neal Collection of $5 Indians.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28DJ, PCGS# 8514)
