    1913 Two and a Half Dollar Indian, PR66
    Fine Sandblast Surfaces, Well-Preserved

    1913 $2 1/2 PR66 NGC. The mintage for matte proof 1913 quarter eagles was 165 pieces. One trait pointed out by each authority in the field of Indian quarter eagles is the high grade of the survivors. This is borne out by the average grade of the pieces we have encountered over the past 25 years, an average of 65.4. The traditional number of survivors has been only 55 to 65 individual proofs. However, John Dannreuther's new gold reference almost doubles that estimate to 100 to 120 pieces. The finish and color varies slightly from coin to coin, undoubtedly from the degree of sandblasting done to the coins in each batch of matte proofs produced. This particular piece has the usually seen almost tan color with hints of yellowish-green. The surfaces show finer granularity than encountered on proofs from the previous year. The only pedigree identifiers we see are a small speck of color below star 1, a short mark out from the Indian's upper lip, and a few tiny marks in the area of the motto on the reverse. Impressive preservation and high-end quality for the grade.(Registry values: N7079)
