    1911-D Quarter Eagle, MS61
    Strong Mintmark

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS61 NGC. In the updated Handbook of 20th Century United States Gold Coins 1907-1933, originally by Akers, the 1911-D is listed as the rarest Indian quarter eagle overall, to nobody's surprise; it is also rated in a tie for second for high-grade rarity, with only the 1914-D issue surpassing it. The text notes: "Most examples are in lower Mint State grades, and coins that grade MS-60 to MS-62 are actually offered fairly regularly on the market. MS-63s are seldom available, however, and the 1911-D is rare any finer."
    This is one of the more affordable examples of this key issue. The surfaces are lightly abraded, as one would expect, and the striking details are strong (except on the lowest headdress feather, as usual) with a pronounced mintmark. Light reddish-gold color is draped over each side.(Registry values: N2998)
