    Near-Gem 1911-D Quarter Eagle
    Lustrous, Rich Patina

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS64 PCGS. This is an absolutely stunning near-Gem 1911-D quarter eagle with intense, satiny luster and a substantial amount of rose-orange and lilac patina on each side. The overall strike is essentially full with crisp definition over all features, even the all-important D mintmark, and the diagnostic knifelike rim on the upper right obverse is distinct even within the holder. The 55,680 quarter eagles struck in 1911 represent the Denver Mint's first delivery of that denomination. Only two other issues would be struck in this branch mint before cessation of the denomination in 1929.
