    Pleasing 1911 Quarter Eagle, MS66
    The Finest PCGS-Certified

    1911 $2 1/2 MS66 PCGS. Quarter eagles of 1911 are readily obtainable through MS63. Near-Gems become a little more difficult to acquire, and Gems are scarce. Coins grading any higher are infrequently seen.
    We present in this offering the finest PCGS-certified 1911 quarter eagle. NGC has graded only six specimens in this level of preservation, and none finer (2/10). Rich orange-gold patina imbued with traces of sky-blue and lavender adorns each side. The luster is full and highly pleasing. Aside from a handful of light handling marks the surfaces are smoother than ordinarily seen.
    From The Atherton Family Collection, Part Two.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 7KR6, PCGS# 7942)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
