    1909 Quarter Eagle, MS66
    Deep Red-Gold Patina, None Graded Finer

    1909 $2 1/2 MS66 NGC. The 1909 quarter eagle is far more elusive than the first-year 1908 issue, and even Gem examples are scarce. The Premium Gem grade of the present 1909 example further sets it apart from most examples. The surfaces boast deep reddish-gold patina on each side, accompanied by generous luster and frosty texture. Perusal with a loupe only serves to reinforce the extremely high overall quality, even as it reveals a couple of minuscule ticks in the reverse fields, unworthy of further comment. Neither NGC nor PCGS has ever certified an example numerically finer (12/13). Census: 23 in 66, 0 finer (12/13).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 288Z, PCGS# 7940)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
