    1909-O Half Eagle, AU55
    Collector-Grade Example

    1909-O $5 AU55 PCGS Secure. The 1909-O is the rarest Indian half eagle in Mint State, and attractive AU examples are highly sought-after. With a mintage of only 34,200 pieces, the 1909-O is the only New Orleans issue in the series. Coinage was halted in early 1909, as the use of the old Louisiana branch mint as a production facility was discontinued in favor of the new Denver Mint. The 1909-O half eagle is a major key date in the Indian Head series. This Choice AU representative displays natural orange-gold patina and sharp detail with just a brush of high-point wear. Remnants of satiny mint luster glow in the design recesses.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 25ZK, PCGS# 8515)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
