    1911-D Quarter Eagle, Top-Notch MS64+
    Notable Sole Series Key

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS64+ PCGS. CAC. The memorably low mintage of the 1911-D quarter eagle, at 55,600 pieces, has made the issue into the sole key coin -- in absolute terms, not necessarily conditionally -- in the Indian Head quarter eagle series. (The larger 1911-D issues in the half eagle and eagle Indian Head series have other legitimate contenders for absolute rarities in their respective series.) Although there are a plethora of 1911-D quarter eagles that appear in our auctions in the AU through MS62 grades yearly, an MS64+ PCGS example such as this piece, with the added CAC approval, is a standout coin. This piece boasts generous luster over wheat-gold surfaces that boast uniformly top-notch preservation. Note how mark-free the Indian's cheek is, as are the high points of the eagle's breast and the fields on either side. The needle-sharp strike brings up a wealth of intricate detail that is seldom seen. Population: 16 in 64+, 24 finer (3/15).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 7KR7, PCGS# 7943)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
