    1913 Two and a Half Dollar, MS66
    Rose-Gold and Lilac-Tinted Mint Luster

    1913 $2 1/2 MS66 PCGS. From a mintage of 722,000 pieces, the largest in the series, the 1913 Indian Head quarter eagle is an available date in grades up to the near-Gem level. At the MS65 level, the issue is rare, and Premium Gem examples are very rare. NGC has certified only one other coin in MS66 with none finer, while PCGS has graded five specimens at the Premium Gem level with none finer (7/11). The present coin is a spectacular example, fully struck, with pronounced mattelike fields. The obverse surfaces are a delightful reddish color with hints of lilac. The reverse shows decidedly more lilac coloration with accents of red. No blemishes are detected with the unaided eye.
