Description 1909-D $5 MS64 NGC. CAC. The 1909-D is far and away the most plentiful issue in the series, and is also one of the better-produced Denver issues of the Indian Head type. The sunken relief of the designs left the fields exposed to abrasions from stacking and mishandling, with the result that any minimally abraded example is the exception and not the rule. The 1909-D here offered boasts remarkably sharp detail, particularly on the headdress feathers, with complementary smooth surfaces that appear nearly pristine. Soft olive and honey-gold hues encompass satiny luster on each side, intensifying the eye appeal. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1762.50.
