    1911-D Two and a Half, Luminous MS64
    Rarely Offered in Finer Condition

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS64 PCGS. Strong D. A mintage of only 55,680 quarter eagles was accomplished at the Denver Mint in 1911, and the denomination would not be coined there again until 1914. The Mint Director's Annual Report for the fiscal year 1911, stated in part:

    "The gold quarter eagle is a coin for which there is no demand for business uses. There is a call for them each year, about the holiday season, for gift purposes, and during the remainder of the year they drift back to the Treasury."



    The 1911-D is the key date in the Indian quarter eagle series, but since commercial use of this denomination was limited, many Uncirculated survivors are known. Even so, most grade MS63 or lower. This Choice example is among the finest coins typically available to collectors, as Gems are decidedly rare -- only 26 such pieces are reported at PCGS (11/18). This near-Gem is sharply struck and has a strong mintmark. Luster is wheat-gold in color and attractively shimmers across each side.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 7KR7, PCGS# 7943)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
