1909 $2 1/2 PR63 NGC....
Roman Finish 1909 Quarter Eagle, PR631909 $2 1/2 PR63 NGC. From a tiny proof mintage of only 139 pieces, the 1909 proof quarter eagle is the rarest date in the Indian Head series in high grade. The Mint sought to modify the unpopular matte proof style used in 1908, and developed the Roman finish proof for the 1909 issue. This style was a hybrid of the granular matte finish and the more popular mirror finish. Unfortunately, consumers continued to reject the coins. The present coin features a razor-sharp strike, with vivid detail on all design elements. The attractive yellow-gold surfaces are tinted with shades of orange. Census: 7 in 63, 31 finer (3/09).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 289H, PCGS# 7958)
