1908-D $5 Indian. NGC graded MS-63. Well struck. Sharply struck with exceptionally choice surfaces and beaming mint frost. Subtly variegated luster adds even more to the overall attractiveness of this MS63 grade piece. When Bela Lyon Pratt's new Indian head motif reached the public in 1908, they was surprised. Never before in American numismatics had a coin designer broken with tradition in such an overt way as did Pratt. For what he did was to recess the design below the surface of the coin! (PCGS # 8511) .
Estimated Value $1,800 - 1,900.

Realized $2,588
