Gorgeous Roman Finish Proof $5
The year 1908 marked the beginning of the Indian Head design type, the first major design change on that denomination since 1839. The new design, issued in the unique sunken relief format, encouraged the Mint to make another change to normal coinage practices: altering the finish of proof coins from polished fields to a sandblast texturing similar to that employed on some art and award medals. Thus, this issue is a first of American coinage in many ways and today is sought-after both as a type coin and as an intriguing element of early 20th century Mint experimentation. In hand, this example is lighter and considerably more vibrant than seen in our images. The PCGS population is just 13 with 13 higher.
