    Rare Gem 1911-S Indian Half Eagle

    1911-S $5 MS65 NGC. Astonishing quality for this conditionally elusive Five Dollar Indian. The 1911-S is very scarce in all grades of Mint State despite its mintage of 1.4 million pieces. In Gem condition, Akers rates it as an R.8 issue although today, this is slightly overstated. This is a splendid coin whose surfaces are covered with frosted, champagne-gold mint luster. Well defined throughout, there are virtually no impairments on either side. The only noticeable marks are a tiny planchet indention immediately to the left of the eagle's leg, and a diagonal mark from the M of UNUM also to the eagle's leg. Population: 3 in 65, 0 finer (4/04). (#8522) (Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25ZM, PCGS# 8522)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
