    Lustrous 1926 Quarter Eagle, MS66

    1926 $2 1/2 MS66 PCGS. The 1926 Indian Head quarter eagle , with a mintage of 446,000 pieces, is one of the most plentiful of the entire series. This is readily apparent from an inspection of the PCGS/NGC population figures. The two services have certified several thousand examples, with the vast majority falling into the MS62 to MS64 grade ranges. Even MS65 coins can be had without too much difficulty, as close to 1,000 specimens fall into that classification. In the lofty grade of MS66, however, the 1926 is a very challenging coin, with fewer than 50 pieces seen by both services, and none finer.
    The apricot-gold surfaces of this Premium Gem display great luster, and are tinted with hints of mint-green. The design features have been the recipient of a powerful strike, with sharp definition seen in the Indian's hair and bonnet feathers and on the eagle's plumage. A small, light alloy spot is noted on the Indian's nose, and light handling marks occur on some of the raised, exposed fields. Population: 37 in 66, 0 finer (11/07).
