    Popular MS62 1911-D Quarter Eagle

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS62 NGC. In his 1975 volume U.S. Quarter Eagles 1796-1929, David Akers commented:

    "As an issue, the 1911-D is the rarest and most famous of the series and its fame actually extends to the whole of the Numismatic Community, an unusual occurrence for a Gold coin. This coin is probably scarce in any grade but all available evidence tends to confirm the thesis that the 1911-D was actively saved within 15 years of issuance."

    By the author's logic, then, collectors recognized the rarity of the issue even before the series was through. More than 80 years after the end of the denomination, 1911-D quarter eagles such as the present piece continue to attract collectors of this short-lived, completable series. For the MS62 grade, this coin offers strong visual appeal, thanks to a bold strike and bright lemon-yellow luster. Small, scattered abrasions and a shallow scrape at the far right edge of the headdress contribute to the grade.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 7KR7, PCGS# 7943)
