    Lovely Near-Gem Key Issue 1911-D Quarter Eagle

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS64 NGC. The undisputed key to this series, the 1911-D Indian Head Quarter Eagle has long been a favorite among collectors both because of its remarkably low mintage of just 55,680 pieces and its rarity in high grades. Most often seen in EF and AU grades, this issue is very scarce in the higher Mint State grades and is seldom offered above the MS64 grade. This example shows the diagnostic wire rim on the right side of the obverse, and the mint mark is bold and well formed. It is sharply struck on both sides, clearly showing all of the feather details on both the Indian's headdress and on the eagle, and displays only a few light, scattered abrasions that are consistent with the near-Gem grade. One tiny spot is noticed just in front of the Indian's mouth, and is mentioned for accuracy and as a potential aid for pedigree information.(#7943) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 7KR7, PCGS# 7943)

    Weight: 4.18 grams
