EAGLE 1907-1908 Indian, No Motto
Before this coin was produced for business circulation, two varieties were experimented with. Apparently the designer and mint officials were ultimately less than impressed as the design lasted only during 1907 and 1908.
The obverse depicts Miss Liberty wearing an Indian headdress inscribed LIBERTY on a band, 13 stars are in an arc above, and the date is below. The reverse depicts a perched eagle with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above, the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM to the right, and the denomination expressed as TEN DOLLARS below. As President Roosevelt personally objected to the use of the name of the Deity on coins, the Indian issues of 1907 and certain issues of 1908 lack IN GOD WE TRUST. Coinage of the type occurred at Philadelphia in 1907 and 1908 with some coins struck in Denver dated 1908.
