    Exceptional MS63 1911-D Key-Date Quarter Eagle

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS63 NGC. Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth, writing in their Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins, 1795-1933, say of the key-date 1911-D Indian Head quarter eagle: "...few examples were saved at the time of issue. Most of the survivors are in lower Mint State grades...." The population figures bear this out, as several hundred specimens fall into the MS61 to MS64 grade range.
    The MS63 example that we present in this lot displays pretty peach-gold color that resides on well preserved surfaces that yield soft luster. Excellent definition is apparent on the feathers of the headdress and on most of the eagle's plumage, though we note some softness on the eagle's shoulder. Close examination reveals fewer marks than what might be expected for the grade.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 7KR7, PCGS# 7943)

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
