    Series-Key 1911-D Quarter Eagle, MS63

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS63 PCGS. The year 2011 will mark the 100th anniversary of the 1911-D quarter eagle, and the 103rd anniversary of the inception of the Indian Head series. While numismatists tend to think of the Saint-Gaudens and Pratt gold designs as "modern," they are becoming increasingly less so. The 1911-D quarter eagle, in any case, has been recognized for many years as the important key to the series. While the advent of the Registry Set phenomenon has spurred the recognition of some other Indian quarter eagles as rarer in terms of total survivors in the highest Mint State grades, the 1911-D, rather than a conditional rarity, is a foundational rarity--a coin that is rare in all grades. This is a splendid, brightly lustrous example that has rich, reddish patina over each side. The mintmark is strong as are the other striking details, the only hint of softness is on the usually seen lowest feather of the headdress. The surfaces are refreshingly free from the abrasions that all too often plague this series.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 7KR7, PCGS# 7943)
