    1911-D Indian Quarter Eagle, MS64+
    Low-Mintage Branch Mint Key

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS64+ PCGS. The 1911-D boasts the lowest mintage of the Indian quarter eagle series at a meager 55,680 pieces. One of only three branch mint issues in the series, the 1911-D has been a sought-after series key since the 1930s, as evidenced by the description of the example in lot 886 of the William B. Hale Collection (B. Max Mehl, 11/1939), in the Denver Mint Quarter-Eagles section of the catalog:

    "1911 About uncirculated, with considerable luster. Rare and in great demand. Listed at $15.00 in very fine condition."

    Most examples seen today are in lower Uncirculated grades and the 1911-D is quite elusive in grades above MS64. This Plus-graded Choice example exhibits sharply detailed design elements throughout and the all-important mintmark is unusually bold. The well-preserved orange-gold surfaces are lustrous and appealing. PCGS has graded 27 numerically finer examples (10/19).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 7KR7, PCGS# 7943)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
