Magnificent 1913 Indian Half Eagle, MS66
The Finest PCGS-Certified Specimen
1913 $5 MS66 PCGS. CAC. A spectacular Premium Gem, the coin offered here is the single finest 1913 Indian Head half eagle PCGS has ever handled, and NGC has graded only six examples in this exalted grade (11/10). While numerous offerings of MS65 coins can be found in the archives, we believe this is the first time an MS66 specimen has ever been offered at public auction.
The 1913 Indian Head half eagle was a well-produced date, with a substantial business-strike mintage of 915,901 pieces. In his catalog of the Dr. Thaine B. Price Collection, David Akers called the 1913 "one of the most attractive issues of the series." The typical specimen features a sharp strike, with a little softness on the eagle's left leg.
The present coin displays razor-sharp definition on all design elements, including the eagle's leg. The pristine fields of this coin are another area in which this specimen is markedly superior to the average example, as the flat surfaces, with no rims, were prone to bag marks and other abrasions. No mentionable distractions are evident on either side of this piece. The surfaces are blanketed in delightful shades of yellow and rose-gold, while the mint luster is finely granular but vibrant. The visual appeal of this specimen is incredible. Clearly, this coin stands out, even above the high standards of the 1913 half eagle.
While this issue can be located with ease in lower grades, and even Gem specimens can be found with patience, this offering of a magnificent Premium Gem is the first of its kind. This coin will provide the connoisseur with an unequalled pride of ownership, and no one can predict when the opportunity to acquire a comparable specimen will occur. Population: 1 in 66, 0 finer (11/10).
