FIRST YEAR KEY DATE INDIAN HEAD. Beautifully designed coin full of history. The new Quarter Eagle featured an incuse design.The portrait and eagle are lowered into the surface. That is why grading the series can be difficult, as the highest points for the issue are the obverse and reverse fields. The new design created by Bella Lyon Pratt features a Native American Indian Chief on the obverse and an eagle facing left on the reverse. The date was saved extensively as a first year of issue and can usually be found in most grades with modest effort.
Most examples lack definition on the upper portion of the eagles wing. Many are also found with rather severe die clashes that can sometimes confuse the novice as to the authenticity of the coin.
Although many were saved, MS 66 coins are actually quite rare and only about 60 have been graded by NGC to date.
