1909-O. NGC graded AU-58. CAC Approved PQ. Lovely golden toning. Very rare date. Only 34,200 minted of which merely 1,416 examples are estimated to have survived. As the only Indian Head half eagle struck at the New Orleans Mint, the 1909 issue plays an important role for gold specialists and type collectors alike. The low mintage suggests it is scarcely enough to meet the demand of the current coin market. An example in any grade is scarce and only several gem specimens have ever been located. One of the classic issues from 20th century U.S. gold! The present example will certainly please anyone seeking this tough date. The details of the incused areas are sharp, as excepted, and even the top part of the wing is well-defined. The mintmark is full and completely visible. A frosty appearance with only a few scattered ticks here and there, and light signs of circulation, mostly on the cheek (PCGS # 8515) .
Estimated Value $12,000 - 13,000.

Realized $21,850
