    1909 Indian Quarter Eagle, PR66
    Rare Roman Finish Proof

    1909 $2 1/2 PR66 NGC. The 1909 Roman Finish proof quarter eagle boasts a minuscule mintage of 139 pieces. The Roman Finish was introduced because the matte proofs of 1908 were so unpopular with collectors. The new style proofs were a hybrid blend of the satiny matte finish and the reflective surfaces of earlier years. The resulting Roman proofs did little to improve public satisfaction, and many examples went unsold. An unknown number were melted after year's end. The 1909 is the rarest proof issue of the Indian quarter eagle series today. The date is extremely rare in PR66 condition.
    The present coin is a visual treat, with bright, satiny luster and pleasing orange-gold color. The strike is full, with crisp detail on all design elements. No mentionable flaws are detected on the virtually perfect surfaces. Overall eye appeal is terrific. Census: 3 in 66, 4 finer (3/10).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 289H, PCGS# 7958)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
