    Popular 1908 Indian Quarter Eagle, MS66

    1908 $2 1/2 MS66 PCGS. CAC. Like many other first-year issues that were saved in quantity by the general public, the 1908 Indian Head quarter eagle is a popular type issue. This Premium Gem would fit well in a high-end collection. Its luminous surfaces are peach-gold and orange-gold with a touch of satin, and the devices are well-defined overall, though the eagle's upper wing shows a trace of weakness, a common characteristic. A planchet flaw extends though the ERTY of LIBERTY, though this is a minor distraction. Garrett and Guth comment that this issue is "available in all grades," though PCGS has graded a mere four coins finer -- two each in MS66+ and MS67 (11/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 288Y, PCGS# 7939)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
