Description & Analysis

The year 1908 saw the transition from the venerable Liberty Head half eagle to the new Indian design. Type collectors prize the 1908 Liberty issue, as it is the last date of the design and examples in high grade are not too difficult to locate. Of course, at the Superb Gem level the date is very rare.
