1908-D Indian Eagle. Motto. MS-66 (PCGS).

$37,500

Underrated High Grade 1908-D Motto Indian Eagle.

One of the most underrated circulation strike Indian Eagles, the 1908-D Motto Indian eagle was produced in significantly smaller quantity than the No Motto variety that preceded it. A supremely attractive example of this transitional type, the surfaces are satiny with rich orange-gold patina and accented with subtle hints of rose iridescence scattered throughout. The strike is expertly produced and the surfaces are notably smooth across the fields, far finer than typically seen. Enough low-end Mint State 1908-D Motto eagles are extant to satisfy demand from less discerning collectors. Although few examples are certified finer than MS-63, collectors with patience can secure a MS-64 example without too much trouble. The issue becomes quite difficult any finer than 64 however, and Gems and Premium Gems are rarely offered at all. Probably because of the conditionally challenging nature of this issue, there is a reputation that they are typically unattractive. Nothing could be further than the truth on the present example and collectors should not take the opportunity to secure this rarely offered example lightly.

PCGS# 8860. NGC ID: 28GK.
