    First-Year 1908 Indian Quarter Eagle
    MS66, Ex: The Shrike Set

    1908 $2 1/2 MS66 PCGS. Ex: The Shrike Set. Not the example offered in our September 2011 auction containing The Shrike Set of $2 1/2 Indians, but from the same source and clearly a coin chosen with the same care as that collection's first-year Premium Gem. The 1908 was saved in quantity for its novelty value, though few coins have survived so well as this MS66 piece. Gold-orange interiors have a peach overtone that fades out toward the lighter centers. Each side is well-detailed, and only a few tiny luster grazes and other small disturbances preclude an even finer technical designation. PCGS has certified only two numerically finer representatives (8/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 288Y, PCGS# 7939)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
