    Gem Matte Proof 1908 Indian Two and a Half
    First-Year Issue, Exemplary Eye Appeal

    1908 $2 1/2 PR65 NGC. CAC. The first-year American matte proofs of the new 1908 gold Indian Head and Saint-Gaudens designs were a startling departure from the finish of the previous Liberty Head issues, even though the texture continued a numismatic-artistic experiment that had been seen earlier in the decade in several other countries, including France, England, and Canada.
    This Gem proof 1908 quarter eagle of the Pratt design looks even finer than the technical grade, displaying the usual deep khaki-gold color over fully struck surfaces throughout. A darker spot adjacent to the Indian's chin might serve as a pedigree marker, but the eye appeal is exemplary. A fine example for a first-year-of-type proof set. Census: 26 in 65 (1 in 65+), 69 finer (8/12).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 289G, PCGS# 7957)
