Description & Analysis

The 1911-S Indian half eagle has the second highest mintage of the entire series at just over 1.4 million pieces. However, many went directly into circulation and therefore very difficult to locate in the uncirculated grades. In fact, NGC has only graded a total of 4 pieces in gem, with none higher. (8/2016)
