Description & Analysis

The 1912 is a well-made issue that almost always features bold design definition, making it one of the great choices for type collectors. Despite its general availability, the 1912 is one entry in a lineup of conditionally rare Indian half eagles. Fuljenz writes: 'Unlike the 1908 and 1909, this is a date that is nearly unknown above MS65 and the connoisseur will be lucky to find an accurately graded MS65.'
