    Low-Mintage 1911-D Quarter Eagle, MS62
    Boldly Defined Mintmark

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS62 NGC. CAC. The 1911-D quarter eagles were struck alongside the 1911-D Lincoln cents at the Denver Mint. Both were new issues for the Denver facility, which was then a smallish frontier mint that was itself rather new, having produced its first coinage in 1906. The Lincoln cent had been introduced in 1909, but for the first two years of the new design, only Philadelphia and San Francisco struck those coins. Similarly, the quarter eagle redesign of Bela Pratt was accomplished by 1908, and by 1911, neither the cent nor quarter eagle saw much collector interest when Denver struck its first attempts in those denominations. But the cent mintage was a generous one; the quarter eagle production was another matter entirely. Only 55,600 pieces were struck of the two and a half, and survivors are highly prized today. This is a lovely, bright orange-gold example that is minimally abraded for an MS62. The striking details are strong, with especially bold definition on the mintmark.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 7KR7, PCGS# 7943)
