    Smooth 1911 Matte Proof Indian Head Quarter Eagle, Gem Quality

    1911 $2 1/2 PR 66 NGC. The Philadelphia Mint struck its 1911 proof quarter eagles with matte surfaces that are noticeably lighter in color than those encountered on 1908 specimens. Although 191 pieces were reportedly struck, no more than 3 dozen survive in all grades. Pale powder-blue iridescence overlays the lower right obverse and interrupts the otherwise golden-tan color on both sides. The strike is typically complete and the placid surfaces present a picture of numismatic excellence. A lovely coin for the advanced gold collector. (NGC ID# 289K, PCGS# 7960)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
