Description:
Premium Gem Proof 1908 Quarter Eagle
Introductory Matte Proof Issue
1908 $2 1/2 PR66 NGC. During the 1907-08 transition on the quarter eagles and half eagles from the long-running Christian Gobrecht Liberty Head design to the Indian Head motif of Bela Pratt, no proofs would be made of the 1908 Liberty Head half eagle, and neither proofs nor business strikes would be made of the 1908 Liberty Head quarter eagle. Despite a generous production of 236 Indian Head proof quarter eagles, many collectors objected to the new matte finish, a radical departure from earlier proof gold. The 1908 is today available in grades up to the occasional PR67, although PR66 examples are seen more frequently. This PR66 specimen boasts the typical razor-sharp strike throughout both sides, a coin seemingly free of even the most trivial signs of contact. The color is a uniform brownish-gold that is usually seen on this date. Census: 40 in 66, 27 finer (5/11).
