Why order this $2.50 Gold 1927 Indian Head Quarter Eagle?

Bela Lyon Pratt's Indian Head Quarter Eagle and Half Eagle are unique among coins in American history in that the designs and lettering are incuse rather than raised from the surface of the coin. While this created some consternation among collectors, who had trouble stacking the coins, and consumers, who found that dust and debris gathered in them, it also makes the coins essential to any collection of historic pieces. This 1927 piece is an excellent choice for a type coin.

Striking Native American Design by Bela Lyon Pratt

Reverse: On the reverse, an eagle stands proudly perched upon arrows, which are wrapped in an olive branch. The bird is flanked by two statutory inscriptions, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST." Rim inscriptions note the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "2 1/2 DOLLARS."
