    Superb 1909 Indian Half Eagle PR67

    1909 $5 PR67 PCGS. Struck in the rare and highly coveted "Roman Finish" used only in 1909 and 1910, the surfaces of this piece are much lighter in color than the 1908 and also more minutely granular, this finish being a curious mixture between a brilliant and matte proof, giving the coin a semi-brilliant, satiny appearance. These coins have often been confused with high-grade business strikes, but seen side by side one can easily see a difference in the texture of the surfaces. Only 78 proofs were made, the 1909 being a rarer issue than other dates from 1908-13. We estimate that probably 30-40 pieces still exist today. This impeccable specimen is noteworthy for its silky-smooth appearance and bright, satiny texture. Traces of lemon-yellow and orange patina reside in the more protected areas. Few Indian Half Eagles of any date could match this piece for both technical and aesthetic attributes. Population: 1 in 67, 0 finer (11/04).
