    Sharply Defined, Lustrous MS62 1911-D Two and a Half

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS62 NGC. CAC. The strike is uncommonly bold on this luminous lemon-gold Indian quarter eagle key, with excellent definition on the Indian's necklace and the eagle's feathers. The mintmark is similarly crisp, an important consideration. Hints of aqua appear in the hollows of the portrait, and a touch of tan is seen over the reverse high points. Light, scattered abrasions in the fields preclude a finer designation. Still, this coin remains appealing and immensely desirable.
    Few issues combine low absolute mintages with high series popularity in the manner of the 1911-D quarter eagle. Its mid-five-figure mintage stands out from issues that all have production numbers over 200,000 pieces, and demand for better examples, particularly lightly circulated and Mint State coins, is great.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 7KR7, PCGS# 7943)
