Description

1911-D Two and a Half, MS63
Sharply Struck Throughout

1911-D $2 1/2 MS63 NGC. The 1911-D has a remarkable reputation as the sole low-mintage key to the Indian Head quarter eagle series, due to its low emission of 55,680 pieces. This places it in high demand in all grades, among collectors of all stripes. Although the budget-conscious might be tempted to assemble a nice set and then "go low" for the 1911-D, Mike Fuljenz writes in Indian Gold Coins of the 20th Century:

"The quality of eye appeal seen on the 1911-D Quarter Eagle varies greatly. There are some very handsome coins known in all grade ranges, but most collectors wind up with an example that is very low-end for the grade. It is our strong belief that since this is the key issue in the Indian Head Quarter Eagle set the collector should stretch and try to buy the nicest example that is feasible. An otherwise unexceptional set can be made very desirable with the addition of a very nice 1911-D."


That is an apt description for this Select example of this well-known key. The surfaces are bright yellow-gold and have a granular texture with frosted mint luster. The surfaces are minimally marked, the only abrasions of any consequence seen on the on the high point of the cheek of the Indian and in the field just below the chin. The strike is strong overall, including the all-important mintmark.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2894, PCGS# 7943)
