||1909 $2 1/2 MS64 NGC. CAC. A mintage of 441,899 pieces was more than 20% less than the 1908 first-year production, and a corresponding drop in the number of grading events at PCGS and NGC reflects the reduced number of high-grade examples. This example is both well struck and attractive. The weakness in the eagle's wing is no longer an issue, with the Mint having made the necessary adjustments in die production. The coin is a lovely, lustrous medium-gold color with sharply impressed motifs. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
