1908 Indian Quarter Eagle NGC PR68

1 of Only 2 So-Graded

With the new coinage designs of 1907 and 1908, the mint recognized these coins could not be produced by the conventional brilliant proofing method. Their solution was to sandblast the coins, producing a matte surface; a finish that had been applied to some mint medals for decades. However, the mint’s main customers for proofs were coin collectors, and collectors were generally not familiar with the matte proofing technique or appearance. The result was general dislike by the collecting community and dwindling sales for proof gold until the final year in 1915. There were 236 proof quarter eagles produced, and it is estimated that 100 to 120 pieces are extant today. The surfaces on this piece border on perfection. This is one of only two so-graded by NGC, with none higher.

First Year 1907 No Motto Indian Eagles PCGS AU58 & PCGS MS61

A Special Offering

Saint-Gaudens’ initial design for the Indian eagle did not include the motto IN GOD WE TRUST, but the inscription was added in 1908, creating a popular two-year design type. The 1907 issue is the go-to No Motto type-coin for many collectors. And that makes perfect sense, as it’s a first- year-of-issue of a two-year type. We have the following available for sale:

PCGS AU-58 (20 coins available) Offered at $1,195/each

PCGS MS-61 (18 coins available) Offered at $1,265/each

1910 Indian Half Eagle PCGS PR64

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.

1911 Indian Eagle NGC MS67

Superb

In Superb Gem condition, most Indian eagle issues are either unknown or prohibitively rare. Even plentiful type-coin issues such as the 1926 and 1932 are essentially uncollectible (or nearly so) in this condition. Among With Motto dates, the 1911 is one of only a handful that — although conditionally very rare — are still collectible in this top condition. We haven’t offered an NGC MS67 example at auction in nearly five years. This particular specimen displays lovely orange-gold color, a sharp strike and problem-free surfaces. The NGC population is 9 with 5 higher.

1914-S Indian Eagle PCGS MS65

Just Two Graded Higher

Similar to other S-mint Indian tens, the 1914-S is a significant condition rarity. This issue saw a mintage of 208,000 pieces and is relatively easy to obtain in circulated grades. Most Mint State examples grade MS60 to MS63, and are obtainable with patience and searching. Near-Gems are scarce and MS65 and finer pieces are rare. The PCGS population is only 12 with 2 graded higher (one of which is an MS65+). That helps to explain why we have not auctioned a PCGS MS65 since way back in 2007!

1929 Indian Half Eagles NGC/PCGS MS64

Rare Last-Year Pair

While short lived, this series comprised a number of highly elusive dates, none more so than the 1929. Although, the 1909-O is more recognizable to some, due to its low mintage, the 1929 is rarer in the absolute sense, with a survival rate which is approximately 50% lower. A total of 662,000 1929 five-dollar gold pieces were struck, but nearly the entire mintage was held in reserve and eventually melted after the Gold Recall of 1933. Coins that avoided the melting pot are apt to be found in AU to Uncirculated condition, generally MS61 to MS63. Anything finer than the two offered here is very rare, indeed. In fact, an MS65 example would cost more than twice what these do.

1910 Indian Quarter Eagle NGC MS66

Pristine Looking, Golden-Orange

The 1910 Indian quarter eagle is one of the better-struck issues in the early part of the series, frequently seen with rich luster and bold design elements. The challenge comes in finding an example with minimal abrasions, as the typical coin is affected by numerous faint ticks and surface grazes that limit the grade, as well as the eye appeal. This particular representative, therefore, will be a refreshing reward for the patient buyer. The NGC population is just 18 with none graded higher.

1909-O Indian Half Eagle NGC AU58

Nearly Mint State $5 Indian Rarity

The Indian Head design quarter eagles, half eagles, and eagles were, with a single exception, minted at Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco. The one exception, of course, is the 1909 Indian half eagle coined at New Orleans. Total production for the issue was just 34,200 coins. Additionally, the issue appears to be the object of heavy collector demand and this is an ideal grade for collector consideration.

1909 Indian Eagle PCGS MS65

Pleasing to the Eye

Among Indian eagles from the Philadelphia Mint, the 1909 issue is one of the most challenging to locate in high grade. From a business-strike mintage of 184,789 pieces, most of the coins were either released into circulation, where they suffered the usual wear and attrition, or were held in government storage until they were melted in the 1930s. Today, the 1909 Indian ten dollar is rare in MS65 condition, and finer coins are even more elusive. The PCGS population report is 18 with 15 higher.
