    Vibrant Premium Gem 1909 Quarter Eagle

    1909 $2 1/2 MS66 PCGS. This is a pleasingly detailed representative with attractive, slightly satiny wheat-gold surfaces; these qualities are consistent with the issue's description in Garrett and Guth, which reads in part: "This 1909 issue is more sharply and completely struck than the quarter eagles seen in [1908]. Most examples have eye appeal and are quite lustrous." The authors further note that the issue is available for a price through most grades, even Gem. Registry enthusiasts know that finer examples, such as this MS66 coin, are substantially more elusive. Housed in a green label holder. Population: 16 in 66, 0 finer (6/08).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 288Z, PCGS# 7940)
