    1909 Indian Quarter Eagle, MS66
    Unknown in Finer Grades

    1909 $2 1/2 MS66 PCGS. From a nominal mintage of 441,760 pieces the 1909 Indian quarter eagle is one of the better dates in the series. The 1909 is underappreciated by nonspecialists, but only the famous 1911-D and the low-mintage 1914 issues are seen less often in today's market. Lower Mint State examples can be found with some patience, but specimens in MS66 condition are rare, and the date is unknown in higher numeric grades.

    The present coin is a spectacular Premium Gem with sharply detailed design elements that show pinpoint definition on the headdress feathers. The pristine orange-gold surfaces display hints of red and lilac, with bright mint luster and terrific eye appeal throughout. Housed in a green label holder. Population: 17 in 66, 0 finer (8/13).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 288Z, PCGS# 7940)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
