    Satin-Like Gem 1912 Quarter Eagle

    1912 $2 1/2 MS65 PCGS. True to most issues in the series, the 1912 can be located without too much cost or difficulty in average Uncirculated condition, with a quick check of census data from the two major services revealing that over 4,000 pieces have been certified in Mint State grades. Of course, the availability of Gem examples nearly drops off the radar screen. This lovely representative exhibits bright satin-like surfaces and is accented in delicate lilac patina, returning to olive-gold at the borders. A small mark is noted on the Native American's jaw, being perhaps of slightly greater distraction than faint pinscratch above the eagle's head. Population: 39 in 65, 4 finer (12/04).
