    1909-O Half Eagle, AU58
    Only New Orleans Indian Five

    1909-O $5 AU58 NGC. The 1909-O Indian half eagle claims a low mintage of 34,200 pieces, struck during the final year of coinage operations at the New Orleans Mint. The issue is the rarest coin in the series in absolute terms, and the only Indian half eagle struck at the famous Southern mint. It seems that a few high-quality coins were saved by contemporary collectors, or perhaps for novelty value by the general public, as a few dates in the series are more difficult to locate in high grade. Still, the 1909-O is definitely scarce in AU58 condition and the issue is always in demand.

    This attractive Near-Mint example shows just the slightest trace of high-point wear on the sharply detailed design elements. The pleasing orange-gold surfaces are lightly abraded and retain most of their original mint luster. This coin should find a home in a fine date collection or branch mint type set.(Registry values: N2998)
