    1911 Indian Quarter Eagle, PR66+
    Distinctive Matte Proof Issue

    1911 $2 1/2 PR66+ PCGS. The Mint returned to the sandblast, or matte, finish for proof coins in 1911, because the so-called "Roman Gold" finish of the previous two years proved so unpopular with collectors. A generous mintage of 191 proof Indian quarter eagles was struck in 1911, but the issue is more elusive than that relatively large production total would suggest. As might have been anticipated from collector-response to the matte proof issues of 1908, the matte finish was equally unpopular in 1911 and many proofs went unsold, to be melted after the end of the year.

    This Plus-graded Premium Gem exhibits the razor-sharp definition and textured luster characteristics of the best matte proofs of this era. The orange-gold surfaces are impeccably preserved and the coin has an impressive medallic quality that is extremely popular with sophisticated collectors today. Overall eye appeal is terrific. Population: 18 in 66 (1 in 66+), 22 finer (11/17).(Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 289K, PCGS# 7960)
