    Series Key 1909-O Half Eagle MS62 NGC

    1909-O $5 MS62 NGC. This apricot-gold example is crisply struck and has a pleasing obverse. A few wispy vertical slide marks on the reverse field and a pair of light diagonal marks on the upper right reverse determine the grade. The 1909-O is the lowest mintage Indian Half Eagle, and in Mint State, is regarded as the key to the series. The first O-mint Half Eagle issue since 1894, and the only New Orleans issue for any of the recently issued (1907 to 1908) gold denominations. 1909 was the final year of coinage at the New Orleans Mint, although the facility continued to serve as an assay office.
