One of the finer 1908 Motto Indian eagles known today and highly desirable as such. The surfaces are greenish-yellow gold and show ample mint luster in the fields. The strike is reasonably sharp. As the designs left considerable open fields and the devices like Liberty's cheek are also smooth, these areas are prone to heavy bagmarks. This example is an exception and very few Indian eagles are found this well preserved.
