    1911-D Quarter Eagle, MS62
    Strongly Struck Throughout

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS62 NGC. The 1911-D quarter eagles were "a long time comin'," to quote the popular song, as was the Denver Mint itself. The site for the new mint, at West Colfax and Delaware streets in Denver, was purchased for $60,000 in 1897, but there were insufficient funds authorized to complete and equip the building. The coinage presses that were eventually used for the 1906 coinage were first sent to the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis for display purposes. The mint finally struck its first gold and silver denominations in 1906, but it would be 1911 before the facility produced its first quarter eagles; the token production of the 1911-D amounted to only 55,680 pieces. Examples are always high on the want lists of collectors, and this piece offers the collector good value for the grade. The surfaces are bright and lustrous with the usual granularity. The striking definition is strong on the devices although just a bit weak on the mintmark, and the fields display the expected small abrasions for the grade.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 7KR7, PCGS# 7943)
