U.S. 1908-1929 Indian Head $2 1/2 & $5 Gold Piece Pair, Extra Fine. Using incuse minting, designs on both the obverse and reverse were struck below the coin's surface to save wear while in commerce. A small portion of the 7.2 million quarter eagles minted survive today and only one Indian Head was issued for every four of its predecessor's Coronet Liberty gold half eagles. Many of those that were in circulation were recalled during the Depression and the vast majority melted. Our choice of date. Sharply detailed Extra Fine quality.
