    1911-D Two and a Half, MS63
    Rich Reddish Patina, Strong Mintmark

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS63 PCGS. The Indian Head quarter eagles are a compact, 15-coin set that can be completed far more readily than any other from the classic era of U.S. gold coinage, which officially concluded in 1933 with President Roosevelt's Gold Recall. The last Indian Head quarter eagle issue, the 1929, was made four years earlier. Save for the 1911-D key at 55,680 pieces, every other date saw a production in the six figures, ranging on the low side from the 1914 at 240,000 coins to the 1913, the high-mintage leader at 722,000 examples. The average mintage figure among the 15 issues is 483,350 pieces.
    It is interesting that the second-lowest mintage, that of the 1914, is 50% of the average, while the highest-mintage 1913 is 50% above the average. These factors make it unsurprising that the 1911-D is the sole issue to achieve real notoriety in the series. Each side displays rich reddish-gold color with occasional glimpses of lilac interspersed. The strike is strong throughout with especially noteworthy definition on the mintmark. The surfaces show numerous small to medium-sized abrasions on each side.
