    1911-D Indian Two and a Half, MS62
    Satiny Surfaces and a Strong Mintmark

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS62 NGC. There are a couple of unique attributes to the 1911-D quarter eagle that should help most collectors pick a nice example for their sets. While these criteria are certainly not limited to the 1911-D, it is an unusual issue to which some of them apply to an exceptional degree. Luster is at the forefront. The 1911-D's luster varies widely in all grades, a fact Mike Fuljenz pointed out recently in Indian Gold Coins of the 20th Century. Although the luster is usually a bit below par, those seldom-seen pieces with "very good frosty luster" are rare and desirable.
    The 1911-D is also seen with Strong D and Weak D varieties, as the mintmark is virtually invisible on some specimens. Collectors should generally opt for the Strong D variant, all else being equal. Original color and eye appeal are also of paramount importance on the 1911-D.
    This bright, satiny example exhibits a strong mintmark. The surfaces are light reddish-golden with minimal abrasions present for the grade. Sharply struck as well.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 7KR7, PCGS# 7943)
