Hello.

New acquisition; a 1908 Quarter Eagle.

Tough to grade these; I see a bit of wear on the headdress and high points of the eagle. AU-50?

Opinions welcome.

Thanks for the feedback; I'm going to list this one as AU-53 in my collection notes, which is higher than the AU-50 I assumed originally.

btw: This is the first time I have purchased uncertified raw gold online (since the Covid-19 pandemic has closed the real world). I spent a lot of time looking at a lot of coins, but still was worried about deceptive photographs and counterfeits, which are apparently common on the quarter eagle market.

I am relieved this one turned out well.

This is a good coin to buy circulated since the recessed design stays razor sharp.
