    Splendid MS64 1911-D Quarter Eagle

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS64 PCGS. The shortness of the Indian quarter eagle series has tempted many collectors who have then floundered when it came to acquiring the 1911-D. The problem is not one of availability, as this issue is generally available for a price in most grades up to MS64. Rather it is a problem of finding a coin that fits with the other coins in the set. This series is affordable and attainable in MS64 condition in almost all other issues, but the 1911-D is the stopper.
    This piece is sharply struck where many '11-D quarter eagles are not; specifically, the headdress on the obverse and upper feathers of the eagle on the reverse. The surfaces show the usual bright, satiny finish this issue is known for, but they are remarkably unabraded. Rich, reddish-gold color covers each side.
