    1909-O Five Dollar, AU58
    Attractive, Problem-Free Example

    1909-O $5 AU58 NGC. The 1909-O is one of the "stoppers" to the Indian half eagle date and mintmark set. The issue is famously rare in Mint State, and a majority of the more accessible AU representatives have been cleaned or otherwise artificially brightened to the detriment of eye appeal. The present Borderline Uncirculated example will be a refreshing reward for the patient specialist. Subtle olive-gold deepening of the luster occurs over the fields and high points of the design, denoting trivial friction, while the recesses display original, satiny luster in brighter straw-gold hues. There is little softening of the finer details, and the surfaces are free of severe abrasions. A finer 1909-O half eagle will prove exceedingly difficult to find and proportionately more costly to acquire.(Registry values: N2998)
