||1908 $2 1/2 MS64 NGC. CAC. Heavily saved as the first-year issue of Bela Lyon Pratt's sunken relief designs, the 1908 Indian quarter eagle is widely popular for type representation. This Choice example displays pleasantly smooth, satiny luster in shades of green and honey-gold. The strike is bold, with the eagle's facing shoulder exhibiting the diagnostic weakness from inadequate engraving of the die. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
