    1911-D Quarter Eagle, MS64
    Razor-Sharp Mintmark

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS64 NGC. The 1911-D quarter eagle is one of only three Denver Mint issues in the entire 15-coin Indian Head series. The three D-mint coins -- 1911-D, 1914-D, and 1925-D -- are widely spaced within the series, and each has its own unique character. The 1911-D is the absolute series key in all grades, unsurprising given its low mintage of 55,680 pieces. The 1914-D, the second of the three D-mints, is a high-priced conditional rarity only in the highest Mint State grades, but it is considered a type coin in MS60 and lower. The 1925-D, third of the trio, is strictly considered type material, although it is popular among collectors who desire a mintmarked coin.

    The importance of the 1911-D as the sole absolute key to its series is emphasized when one takes a look at the current PCGS online Price Guide (11/18): In the grades of MS60 through MS63, the 1911-D is priced higher than all other 14 series issues in the same grade combined. The mintmark is as strong as it gets on this near-Gem. It is fully defined and visible without magnification. Detail is similarly bold on the headdress and eagle's feathers. Satiny orange-gold surfaces are free of major abrasions.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 7KR7, PCGS# 7943)
