Patriotic Eagle Design by Bela Lyon Pratt

Obverse: The obverse bears Bela Lyon Pratt's Indian Head design. A Native American wears a feathered headdress as he faces left. "LIEBRTY" and "1926" are inscribed at the top and bottom of the rim, respectively, and thirteen stars spread throughout the rest of the rim.

Reverse: On Pratt's reverse, an eagle stands proudly on arrows around which an olive branch is wrapped. To the left and right, respectively, are the inscriptions "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST." Bela Lyon Pratt was a sculptor who graduated from Yale's School of Fine Arts. He is best known for the innovating incuse designs that appear on this coin and the Indian Head Half Eagle.

Beautifully Preserved MS63 with Green Label

This coin's grade is provided on NGC's Green Label. The Green Label was produced in collaboration between Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and Rare Coin Company of America (RARCOA), one of the leading numismatic distributors in the United States. The presence of the label indicates that RARCOA first examined the coin and determined that it met a set of standards referring to luster, strike, eye-appeal, and toning, before it was then submitted for grading to NGC. NGC gave the coin a grade of Mint State 63, which means that it has about an average strike and lacks any traces of wear.
