1908 Liberty Head Half Eagle, MS67
Last Date of Design, Only Two Certified Finer

1908 $5 MS67 PCGS. CAC. The year 1908 saw the transition from the venerable Liberty Head half eagle to the new Indian design. Type collectors prize the 1908 Liberty issue, as it is the last date of the design and examples in high grade are not too difficult to locate. Of course, at the Superb Gem level the date is very rare. Current population data from the grading services bears this out, as PCGS has certified seven coins in MS67, with one finer, while NGC has graded only five examples at the Superb Gem level, with one finer (8/10). The present coin is a magnificent Superb Gem, with pleasing yellow-gold surfaces and blazing mint luster. All design elements display razor-sharp detail, with the strands of Liberty's hair fully separated and every eagle's feather distinct. The fields are virtually pristine and eye appeal is unsurpassed.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25ZE, PCGS# 8418)
