    1908 Two and a Half, MS66
    CAC-Approved Indian Type Coin

    1908 $2 1/2 MS66 PCGS. CAC. The first-year issue is always a favorite type coin for any series, provided that date is not a rarity. The 1908 Indian quarter eagle was saved in ample numbers at the time of issue, the public being intrigued by the sunken relief of the design, by the hand of famed sculptor Bela Lyon Pratt. Today, this issue is readily available through Gem condition, and only in MS66 does it begin to require some patience for acquisition. This Premium Gem is among the finest 1908 Indian quarter eagles with CAC recognition, and it is rare with that coveted green label. Shimmering yellow-gold luster envelops sharp devices and pristine fields. Eye appeal is certainly generous. PCGS has seen a mere three Superb Gems finer. CAC: 22 in 66, 0 finer (11/19).
