Bela Lyon Pratt’s quarter eagle and half eagle avoided the motto controversy that swept the recently introduced Saint-Gaudens gold types. But Pratt’s novel recessed relief design had its naysayers, who thought that germs would accumulate within the devices. However, the principal numismatic difference between the Indian quarter eagle and its Liberty predecessor is that high grades for the former are more difficult to obtain. This is because the fields are the highpoints of the design, and are unprotected from abrasions.
The 1908 Indian quarter eagle was well saved at the time of issue and as a result, examples are plentiful in Gem condition today, and Premium Gems are only marginally scarce. However, of the 127 coins graded MS66 at PCGS, only ten of those pieces carry a Plus designation, and just four are certified finer.
