1908 $2 1/2 PR66 PCGS....
Noteworthy 1908 Quarter Eagle, PR661908 $2 1/2 PR66 PCGS. The year 1908 is particularly noteworthy for the quarter eagle series. Bela Lyon Pratt's interesting and unique incuse Indian design made its debut on this denomination (as well as on the larger half eagle). In addition, the Philadelphia Mint experimented with matte proofs for the first time in the quarter eagle series.
This coin displays deep sandy-gold color and a smooth, superlative matte finish. The surfaces are a joy to behold, being totally void of shiny spots, hairlines, or any of the other impairments common to these briefly produced and rare matte proof issues. While the listed mintage for this date is 236 pieces, it is believed that half or more were melted as unsold. Population: 10 in 66, 2 finer (11/10).
From The Kutz Family Collection of $2 1/2 Indian Proofs.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 289G, PCGS# 7957)
