Description

1909-O Five Dollar, Choice AU
Low-Mintage Series Key

1909-O $5 AU55 NGC. The last gold coin issued in New Orleans and the only O-mint Indian Head five, the 1909-O half eagle has acquired a legendary cachet, but one that is nonetheless quite well-deserved. Despite the mintage of 34,200 coins, even examples in the lower Mint State grades are seldom obtainable. Many collectors opt for a nice XF or AU example, a grade level where a few hundred certified examples likely survive. The issue is fairly well-struck overall, but in the higher circulated grades, finding a nice example with good luster remaining and a bold mintmark may be challenging; the mintmark is weak on many examples. The mintmark on this piece is well-defined, and the surfaces are original and uncleaned although a bit choppy.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 25ZK, PCGS# 8515)
