    Very Scarce 1909 Quarter Eagle MS66

    1909 $2 1/2 MS66 PCGS. The 1909 Quarter Eagle, as often is the case in a design's second year, is much scarcer than the 1908 as it was not saved in any significant numbers. Also unlike its predecessor, this issue is known to be well struck even on the eagle's breast and wingtip. This feature is very much in evidence on the sharply impressed Premium Gem offered here, with intricate detailing of the Indian's headdress and the eagle's feathers. Placid surfaces exhibit an attractive honey-gold appearance that only enhances the overall eye appeal. It has been more than seven years since we last had the opportunity to auction a similarly graded 1909. Population: 15 in 66, 0 finer (12/04).

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
