    Remarkable Near-Gem 1911-D Quarter Eagle

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS64 PCGS. An extremely bold mintmark is the start to this remarkable key coin, the undisputed king of the Liberty Head quarter eagle series and a coin that sees ceaseless demand from a growing collector base. The recent surge in gold prices also appears to have contributed to the increasing collector interest in key-date gold coins.
    The present example also offers mattelike peach-gold centers that cede to deeper reddish-gold at the rims on each side, delightful coloration that adds to the premium appeal. The surfaces are notably free of all but the most minuscule signs of contact, even on the Indian's exposed cheekbone and the open fields on the reverse. A really nice piece, for which strong bidding should be expected. PCGS has certified only 20 pieces finer (12/07).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 7KR7, PCGS# 7943)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
