    Unabraded Gem 1909 Indian Head Five

    1909 $5 MS65 NGC. The 1909 Indian Head five is seldom seen at the Gem level, although an occasional specimen such as the present coin can be obtained with patience. NGC and PCGS have each certified a few dozen submissions at the MS65 grade level, yet it is a surety that those figures comprise many duplications. This Gem specimen displays rich orange-gold luster with accents of hazel scattered about, an original color scheme that high-grade, unfooled-with gold coins sometimes display. Precious few abrasions appear even under a loupe, save for a straight, hair-thin scrape through the reverse field and parts of IN GOD WE. A super example for a type or date set. Census: 66 in 65, 6 finer (6/11).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 28DH, PCGS# 8513)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
