    Choice Uncirculated 1911-D Quarter Eagle, The Key

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS64 NGC. The 1911-D Indian quarter eagle requires little introduction. Even novice collectors of non-gold coins understand the significance of this low mintage two and a half dollar piece. However, certain high grade examples of this key date issue do warrant a healthy amount of boasting, and the current coin is one such piece. The satiny luster seems to intensify the straw-gold coloration of both sides, which are also well struck. The mintmark is especially strong, which is obviously the highlight on this issue. Without the aid of magnification, the surfaces appear to be free of abrasions, and even when examined under a loupe the marks are inconsequential, or at the very least commensurate with the assigned grade. A pleasing coin not only due to its status as a key date, but also in terms of eye appeal.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 7KR7, PCGS# 7943)

    Weight: 4.18 grams
