First year of issue for the Denver Mint Indian Eagle series, and the only branch mint coin of the type that displays the mintmark above the end of the olive branch on the reverse. The '08-D No Motto is scarce even in lower Mint State grades, and survivors that grade MS-64 or finer are very scarce-to-rare in the numismatic market. This lightly frosted Choice Unc is well struck for the type with warm, even, rose-orange color. There are no individually mentionable abrasions to either side. PQ!
