Description 1909-D $5 MS64+ NGC. CAC. The type collector will find much to admire about the 1909-D Indian half eagle. Striking quality varies to a certain degree, but it is not unusual to find an example with design definition that closely rivals that of many Philadelphia issues of the period. This Plus-graded near-Gem is just such a coin, with bold detail in the headdress and eagle's feathers, and unusually smooth surfaces for the grade. The satiny luster displays soft honey-gold color over the central regions, and deeper olive hues around the margins. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2585.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
