As a perusal of auction offerings reveals (ours as well as those of our illustrious competitors), there are few 1907 No Periods Indian eagles available at this lofty grade. This was the first design available to the general public, as the pieces with periods and with either rolled rim or wire rim were distributed rather privately to friends of the Mint and the Treasury Department. Details have been written by Dave Bowers and, separately, Roger Burdette. While lower grade examples of the offered variety are readily available, at the MS-67 level they are few and far between. <br />
Simply outstanding technical quality and eye appeal, this gorgeous piece is drenched in vivid orange-gold color. Both sides are further adorned with vibrant mint luster, the texture a blend of satin and softly frosted textures. Exquisitely struck by the standards of the issue, with not so much as a single trivial distraction to report. Sure to have no difficulty finding its way into a stellar quality type set or renowned Indian eagle collection.
