    Description

    1908 Indian Half Eagle, MS66+
    Important Condition Rarity

    1908 $5 MS66+ PCGS. The introductory 1908 Indian five is readily available in lower Mint State grades, but third-party populations decline precipitously between MS64 and MS67. At the lofty MS66+ level, PCGS has graded just three pieces, and only an additional three coins higher (11/19). This exemplary example confirms its conditional rarity status. The strike is bold, and the lustrous caramel-gold surfaces exhibit minimal imperfections, mostly near the Indian's chin. Given the great cost of the few MS67 pieces, should one appear in a future auction, the advanced Registry Set collector would be advised to take advantage of the present opportunity.
    From The HFW² Collection. (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28DE, PCGS# 8510)
