Greysheet & CPG® PRICE GUIDE

U.S. Coin Values: $2.50 Indian Gold.

About 1908 $2 1/2

The 1908 Quarter Eagle is the first year of issue for the Indian design is may be the absolute most common. In most grades up to and even including gem MS65 the 1908 compares in rarity to many of the highest mintage coins from the series. This date is quite easy to find in most grades with only a minor rarity and value jump to MS66. The only true scarce examples of this coin are those finest known pieces in MS67 holders. This is nearly a perfect type coin issue because of how easy and relatively affordable it can be to acquire very pleasing mint state examples. The satiny obverse of the 1908 has a very solid strike but there are some drawbacks. The eagle of course on the reverse is underdeveloped in spots and the surfaces lack in luster and the coloring is not overly yellow and attractive.

Obverse: Indian (Native American) chieftan in formal headress struck incuse with the words LIBERTY at the top and the date at the bottom. 13 stars frame the left and right sides: 6 at left and 7 on the right.

Reverse: The traditional American eagle struck incuse in the center with the words, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA at top, E PLURIBUS UNIM left of the eagle, and IN GOD WE TRUST to the right of the eagle. The denomination 2 1/2 DOLLARS struck below the eagle.

About CDN Prices

All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.

CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.

Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.

Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.

CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.

Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.

The prices listed in our database are intended to be used as an indication only. Users are strongly encouraged to seek multiple sources of pricing before making a final determination of value.
