    Near-Gem 1911-D Quarter Eagle
    Strongly Struck Overall, Terrific Mint Luster

    1911-D $2 1/2 Strong D MS64 PCGS. CAC. The 1911-D quarter eagle is not conspicuously rare when compared to its low-mintage counterparts in the Indian half eagle and eagle series, but it is conspicuous simply because all other quarter eagle issues are so much more easily obtained. The mintage of the 1911-D quarter eagle was meager at 55,680 pieces. The very availability of the remainder of the quarter eagle issues makes the 1911-D especially desirable, as the only noteworthy obstacle to completing the entire set. This issue is especially rare and valuable in MS64 and better grades. The importance of a piece such as this one is its ability to match with other pieces in a complete collection. As mentioned, the other issues are relatively easy to acquire in, say, MS64 condition. However, an MS64 1911-D requires a significant outlay of cash in order to maintain uniformity of a set. This is an especially attractive example that displays thick mint frost over each side and pronounced reddish-gold color. There are no noticeable marks on either side and the strike is strong throughout with unusually bold definition on the mintmark.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 7KR7, PCGS# 7943)
