    1909-O Five Dollar Indian, MS62
    Low-Mintage Key to the Series

    1909-O $5 MS62 NGC. Variety 1. The 1909-O five dollar is immediately recognizable as one of the keys to the series. Most collectors associate it with the mintage of only 34,200 pieces, the lowest of both Pratt-designed gold denominations. The bell curve of availability for this issue extends from XF40 through AU58, with coins in mint condition seldom available. The mintmark is well-defined and immediately apparent to the unaided eye. The bright, lightly frosted surfaces display even reddish-gold color. The obverse is notably free from abrasions, but a few medium to larger-sized marks can be seen on the reverse, especially the upper third of that side. Census: 28 in 62 (1 in 62+), 15 finer (11/19).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 25ZK, PCGS# 8515)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
