$2.50 1908 PF 67 NGC
Exceptionally well-preserved for the issue as well as the type, this rich yellow-golden specimen does not display any bothersome contact marks or shiny spots from mishandling. Expectantly sharp in strike for the method of manufacture, we wholeheartedly recommend this coin to discerning specialists.There were 236 Proof coins minted for this date. NGC has certified just 22 coins at this level with none finer. Since approximately half of the original mintage is believed extant, it is likely that this first-year date status resulted in a warm reception among contemporary collectors. Although it is widely regarded as the most easily obtainable proof Indian Two-and-a-Half, the 1908 is rare as a Superb Gem with most survivors grading either Proof-64 or Proof-65.
