    Exceptional MS66 1911-D Quarter Eagle

    1911-D $2 1/2 MS66 PCGS. When one discusses the 1911-D quarter eagle, what usually comes to mind first is its impressively low mintage and its absolute rarity. What is often overlooked, however, is its condition rarity beyond the obvious fact that the higher the grade the fewer the number of coins available. But there is a precipitous drop between the MS64 grade and MS65 (194 pieces to a mere 9). In MS66, it is even more dramatic with only three pieces having been so graded by PCGS with none finer at either of the major services (3/04).
    This is a truly spectacular coin, not just for an '11-D but for any Indian quarter eagle. The fields are nearly flawless with only the most minute abrasions present (strong magnification will be required). The striking details are fully brought up in all areas except the lowest feather of the headdress, as usual for business strikes of this type. The mintmark is especially sharp and worthy of note. The mint luster is smooth and satiny with an overlay of incredible rose-gold and lilac coloration that gives this coin a really distinctive appearance. Sure to be eagerly sought after by several serious collectors of this short, collectible series.(#7943) (Registry values: N10218)
