History, Information, and Value of 1908-D No Motto Indian Gold Eagle
Value of 1908-D No Motto Indian Head $10 Gold
Most 1908-D No Motto Indian Gold Eagles are flatly struck in and around the central obverse as well as in isolated areas of the reverse design. Whether softly frosted or satiny, the typical Mint State survivor is a bit lackluster with dull, muted surfaces. Many of the frosty pieces are also a bit granular. Combined with the fact that most survivors are moderately to heavily abraded, the 1908 No Motto emerges as a very challenging issue to locate with strong eye appeal.
Despite a significantly higher mintage, this is the rarer of the two No Motto Indian eagles of this date. The typical 1908 Denver Mint No Motto eagle is either lightly circulated or in a lower Mint State grade through MS-63. It is scarce in MS-64, rare as a Gem, and virtually unobtainable any finer than MS-66. Highest graded honors go to a trio of grading events in NGC MS-67.
The text on the Indian Gold Eagle reads as follows. Obverse: LIBERTY; Date. | Reverse: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; E PLURIBUS UNUM; TEN DOLLARS.
