||1908-D $5 MS64 NGC. CAC. The 1908-D Indian half eagle was produced in significantly lower quantities than its Philadelphia counterpart (only 148,000 coins). This CAC-approved piece shows satiny bronze-gold surfaces are nearly free of noticeable abrasions. As characteristic of this issue, some of the finer details are not fully defined, though the excellent preservation fully balances the eye appeal. NGC has certified only four numerically finer coins (8/14). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
