    1908 Half Eagle, MS66+
    A Prize With CAC Endorsement
    Terrific First-Year Type Coin

    1908 $5 MS66+ PCGS. CAC. The 1908 Pratt half eagle was well-saved and it remains one of the most available issues in the series in high grades. However, examples transition from widely collectible in MS64 to elusive in MS65 to scarce, bordering on rare, in MS66. This MS66+ representative with CAC approval is a prize. The devices exhibit a strong strike and bright mint frost over unabraded yellow-gold surfaces. Die buckling is minimal around the borders. It is not often that coins of this magnitude come to market, so advanced collectors are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity before them. Population: 24 in 66 (3 in 66+), 3 finer. CAC: 10 in 66, 1 finer (11/19).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28DE, PCGS# 8510)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
