    Beautiful 1908 Indian Quarter Eagle, MS66

    1908 $2 1/2 MS66 PCGS. Only a few Indian quarter eagles can match the quality of this piece, regardless of the date, and the first-year of issue status adds considerable desirability to this specimen. It is sharply struck including the headdress, stars, and hair on the obverse, and the eagle's feathers on the reverse. Only the top of the forewing is indistinct, but that is true of every example of the 1908 that we have seen. The surfaces are fully brilliant with bright yellow luster and full mint frost. A trace of light rose toning adds to its aesthetic appeal. Population: 87 in 66, 2 finer (1/10).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 288Y, PCGS# 7939)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
