It took a while and there's no show stoppers, but I'm finished for now.. Only the 11-D remains! Special shoutout to @SurfinxHI and @jwitten as they helped me obtain 99% of these. I highly recommend them both!

    Very nice set of those little gold beauties.... I never tried to build a set of those... I should, I really like the gold Indian. I would do the $5 coins though... Have to think about it... Really do not want to get into such a project, but I sure do like them. Cheers, RickO

    A couple of those may slow the show down.

    Beautiful set - That 11-D (price) is a set stopper :'(

    Nice. I used to own that purple 1913. I bought it from Jon then sold it back to him a few years later. Was curious where it ended up!

    Congrats the gold quarter eagle Indian series is a fun set to put together, I hope someday that you will find an 11-D to fully finish it out

    Quite an accomplishment.
    Gold Indians inspire most of us.
    The reverse of the 1909 shows tremendous detail.
    Hope you acquire that '11 D and pursue the $5.00 Indian set.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Awesome. Way to go.
    Your post really inspired me to search my archives and find the ones I have. There is no way my wife would let me go forward with completing the set :blush: because of the deal we have (that no gold coin should cost more than a slight premium over spot) and guess it is the end of the road and will remain an eternal bucket list item for me to complete this set unless I hit some sort of a Jackpot and collect the proceeds in all forms of eagles. >:)
    Wish you the very best to land the one eluding you.
    Cheers.

    Hi, just curious how the quarter eagle and california gold token achieved the purple rainbow toning? From an album? Yellow flip?

    Wow, beautiful. B)

    I've mostly been collecting modern proof eagles and have doing a mad push of my collection to get everything graded with PCGS for the last 2+ years. I wouldnt have the funds to chase such a collection as this tho.
    But 1 coin I really wished for since a wee yungin' when I never had the $$$ to acquire one was an Indian quarter or half eagle. I always liked the incuse minting. So last year I plunked the dough down and snagged me a $5 piece from APMEX. I chose an MS63 1912 over the 1909s that were also available, as it was in the affordable range for that grade, and I think the population was lower.
    However, the specimen I got was a little more on the tarnished / brown-ish side, much like your 2014 (trueview pic) and a couple others. Was hoping for a bit more gold glow in MS63, but what can you expect from a 110+yr old coin?
    The "true" look in person is a bit more lackluster than this TV pic ...

    Throw it on Ebay and put the funds towards one you like better.. If it bothers you now, it will never stop...JMHO

    Opinion welcome, I'll keep that in consideration. That is a good approach, the "next" one will only cost me the overage from what I can get for this. I'm not much of a flipper tho.
    Looking at it again, its not all that bad, so I'll sit on it for a while. It HAS appreciated in price since I bought it.
    I wonder if a restoration would help with eye appeal?
