Description

Rare Roman Finish 1909 Proof Indian Eagle

1909 $10 PR64 NGC. Out of a mere 74 proof 1909 eagles, probably about half exist today. As with many valuable coins, the population figures for this issue are undoubtedly exaggerated to a degree by resubmissions. Needless to say, this is an extremely scarce and sought after coin, struck with the Roman gold finish used only in 1909 and 1910.
Flawlessly struck and nearly pristine, this lovely coin displays smooth, faintly granular surface textures and rich, evenly distributed coloration over both sides. A few wispy slide marks, along the side of Liberty's face, and a handful of faint toning spots, on the reverse, constitute the only conceivable grade-limiting features of the piece, and seem minimal indeed for a near-Gem. Population: 25 in 64, 20 finer (1/05).(#8891) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28HF, PCGS# 8891)
