1907 Indian Eagle. No Periods. MS-67 (NGC). This splendid coin is tied with a select group of coins at the Superb level and displays radiant mint luster and outstanding surface quality. The strike is average for this year with trace softness at the center on Liberty's head and a few of the stars show minor softness. Close scrutiny finds considerable die bounce effect on a few of the stars and the date -- which show slight doubling as the planchet was squished between the dies. The color is the classic blend of orange-gold with yellow-green frost. Although a couple of coins are certified slightly finer, this is certainly an appealing and well preserved coin that any specialist will be proud to own.
