    Elegant PR67 1911 Quarter Eagle

    1911 $2 1/2 PR67 PCGS. In A Handbook of 20th Century United States Gold Coins 1907-1933, written by David Akers and revised and expanded by Jeff Ambio, the authors praise the 1911 as one of the most accessible matte proof Indian quarter eagle issues, coming in second behind only the first-year 1908. They do caution, however, that "this issue is much rarer than an original mintage of 191 pieces might suggest. Many proof 1911 Quarter Eagles were probably destroyed in the Mint when they failed to sell by year's end."
    The coins that do survive, on the other hand, are generally impressive specimens. The authors continue by talking up the coins' eye appeal, calling it "well above average by the standards of the proof Indian Quarter Eagle series." They further celebrate the date's qualities by adding, "The 1911 usually possesses a sharp strike and carefully preserved surfaces, and most specimens grade Proof-66 or finer."
    As a Superb Gem specimen, the present piece is a wonderful example of the issue. Both sides showcase a thick matte surface, finely granular with a surprisingly light orange-gold color that contrasts with the dark hues often found on the 1908 matte proofs. The strike is sharp, and the surfaces are virtually undisturbed. As may be expected, the 1911 proof quarter eagle is a condition rarity at the Superb Gem level, and PCGS has certified only one numerically finer representative (11/10).
