Description & Analysis

The 1913 Indian Head half eagle was a well-produced date, with a substantial business-strike mintage of 915,901 pieces. In his catalog of the Dr. Thaine B. Price Collection, David Akers called the 1913 'one of the most attractive issues of the series.' The typical specimen features a sharp strike, with a little softness on the eagle's left leg.
