$2.50 Indian

The $2 ½ Indian, or Pratt Quarter Eagle was named after sculptor Bela Lyon Pratt, a former student of Saint-Gaudens. Unlike Saint-Gaudens, who had come up with different designs for the Double Eagle and Eagle, Pratt provided identical portraits of a Native American Chief for both of the smaller coins. The Pratt Half and Quarter Eagle series ended in 1929-one of many victims of that year's Wall Street crash. With the cessation of gold coinage and the great recall of 1934, the Quarter Eagle would not return.
