    Delightful Choice 1911-D Two and a Half

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS64 PCGS. The Indian quarter eagle series is the only classic gold series that lacks any prohibitive rarities. Thus, it can be completed by date and mint by most collectors. But a quick glance at the Guide Book reveals an obvious stopper to the series, the 1911-D. Its mintage of 55,680 pieces stands out, as does its four-digit price in VF20. Demand for the 1911-D is voracious, and much of it comes from key date accumulators in addition to the many date and mint collectors of the popular series.
    This is a magnificent near-Gem that has radiant sun-gold surfaces and an above average strike. Only inconsequential marks are present, and the eye appeal is exemplary. Although PCGS has certified 20 pieces finer, those are outside the price range of all but the most well-heeled collectors, while the value provided by the present example is incontrovertible.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 7KR7, PCGS# 7943)
