    Premium Gem 1927 Quarter Eagle
    None Certified Finer

    1927 $2 1/2 MS66 PCGS. Only 388,000 Indian Head quarter eagles were struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1927. In spite of the small mintage, the date is not too difficult to locate in grades up to the Gem level. Gem examples can be found with patience, but Premium Gems are definitely rare. Currently, PCGS has certified 17 coins in MS66, with none finer, while NGC has graded only nine examples at the Premium Gem level, with none finer (6/10).
    The present coin is a spectacular Premium Gem, with a sharp strike and virtually flawless fields. The attractive rose-gold surfaces exude frosty mint luster, and the outstanding eye appeal is a match for the high technical grade.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# BUTL, PCGS# 7951)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
