    Satiny MS63 1911-D Quarter Eagle

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS63 NGC. The 1911-D is the most easily recognizable and by far the most valuable issue in the Indian quarter eagle series. It is the key and a real stopper for most collectors who see this as an otherwise short and completable series. In a Coin World article from 1992, Mary Sauvain listed the characteristics of genuine 1911-D quarter eagles. There are two die scratches (both on the reverse), but easier to see are the characteristics caused by the minting process itself. One is a prominent wire rim on the obverse from 11 to 5 o'clock. The other is "scalloping" seen on the rim on the reverse between 11 and 1 o'clock. The wire rim is certainly visible on this piece, and the scalloping is present but difficult to discern because of the plastic encasement.
    This is a strongly struck coin whose only area of weakness is on the lowest feather of the headdress. Even golden-orange color is seen over each side, and the surfaces are remarkably clean for the grade with no major disturbances of the bright, satiny mint luster.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 7KR7, PCGS# 7943)
