I couldnt resist this one. I sold half of my collection for it. A few months ago I decided to finally get serious about my $2.5 Indian set. This one just has to be in my collection. Two finer and none higher with CAC.

Beautiful piece. You likely know this already, but yours is one of the plate coins on CoinFacts: https://www.PCGS.com/coinfacts/coin...2-50/7942/65

WOW!!!!!

Let me help put in perspective for others how truly special and rare your coin is, in addition to being knockout gorgeous. While I also "swim in the deep end of the pool", as a Type Set collector I have only one Indian Quarter Eagle. While it's also graded by PCGS as 65+ w/CAC, mine is the more common 1908, which has 124 finer than mine, not 2 finer. Of those 124 graded higher than mine, 24 merit a CAC, where with your beauty, NONE graded higher have a CAC. My hat is off to you, sir! This is truly a rare coin that you will appreciate as long as it is in your custody. Enjoy!!!!

Edited to add: I just peeked at your PCGS Registry Set, and see that four of the five coins that you've started your set with merit the coveted CAC sticker. As many know, it's super tough getting John Albanese to CAC gold coins.
A day without fine wine and working on your coin collection is like a day without sunshine!

I've never owned a classic gold coin, but this type will be the first someday. Very nice.

Jon, a most excellent looking piece! I was just mentioning you in another thread on grading and how much I've learned from your Pratt designed coins in your posts over the years. Then you pop up with this one! WOW - wow - wow.

But it's not about the value, it's about the beauty of the coin, and the rarity in this pristine condition after over 100 years!

That date mint combo will be a challenge for anyone, here's one of the nicer yet "affordable" ones in superb mint state condition:

It's relatively cheap currently at $20K too, and only 2 more days to go.

There's almost always one coin that is near impossible to either afford or find to complete a full set of something.
