1908 $5 Indian. NGC graded Proof 64. Well struck and a nice Matte Proof gold coin with every quality that a tested numismatist could ask for. The coin is razor-sharp in all areas. It is resplendent with sandblast surfaces that are like microscopic diamond sparkles when viewed under magnification. There are no spots. There are no nicks on the surface. And the best part about it is that NGC, one of the two most widely respected grading services after more than two decades in the business of grading coins for a fee, calls it Proof 64. That in itself should recommend it to any serious buyer who is willing to make the financial decision to become its next custodian. Only 167 Proofs struck in 1908. Pop 19; 62 finer; 21 in 65; 30 in 6; 10 in 67; 1 in 68. (PCGS # 8539) .
Estimated Value $12,000 - 13,000.

Realized $17,250
