    1911-D Quarter Eagle, Sharp MS64
    High-End Surfaces, Great Eye Appeal

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS64 NGC. The 55,680-piece mintage is by far the lowest of the series, although there are a couple of Indian Head quarter eagles that are marginally scarcer in high Uncirculated grades. Overall, the 1911-D is by far the rarest issue in all grades combined. Demand is unrelenting for any 1911-D, and those who prefer to wait for a particularly high-end coin should pay close attention to this near-Gem example.

    A diagnostic raised wire rim encompasses the entire right side of the coin (a good indicator of a bold strike), while the all-important mintmark is razor-sharp, as is the eagle's feather definition and the Indian's headdress. Sparkling orange-gold color radiates from both sides, with eye appeal seldom seen for this challenging Denver mint issue. A loupe reveals only a few tiny marks, and most of those are tiny planchet irregularities. We seldom see an '11-D this Choice.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 7KR7, PCGS# 7943)
