    Attractive MS66 1908 Quarter Eagle

    1908 $2 1/2 MS66 PCGS. This Premium Gem is a remarkable example marking the first year of this novel design. The Indian Head quarter eagles and half eagles are the only U.S. coins with an incuse design, making them unique within American numismatics. A touch of weakness is noted, primarily on the upper part of the eagle's wing, as always on this date. The dies were prepared improperly, as the Mint engraving staff was unaccustomed to this type of design. A remarkable coin with bright and frosty yellow-gold color and pristine surfaces, immensely appealing for the design. Population: 81 in 66, 2 finer (6/08).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 288Y, PCGS# 7939)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
