    1911 Two and a Half Indian, PR66+
    Sparkling Matte Surfaces

    1911 $2 1/2 PR66+ PCGS. CAC. JD-1, R.4. After a vote was taken at the 1910 ANA, the Mint reverted to the matte finish that was first used in 1908, and then abandoned in 1909-1910 when "bright proofs" were struck. There were 191 proof quarter eagles struck in 1911 with an estimated survivorship of 100 to 120 pieces in all grades. Since the mintage was relatively high and the face value relatively low for a proof gold coin, there appear to have been a higher percentage of high-grade proofs set aside and saved through the ensuing decades and generations. The surfaces are fine-grained with a pronounced reddish-gold tint. Curiously for a piece of proof gold, there are localized areas of softness noted; specifically, the lowest feather in the Indian's headdress, the plumes on the headdress, the eagle's forward leg, and the breast feathers.(Registry values: N7079)
