1911-D $2.50 Indian. PCGS graded MS-64+. Strong D. In a new secure plus holder. Should be submitted to PCGS again for regrade to gem status. A beautiful example. 55,680 minted. The key coin in the Indian quarter eagle series. Lovely rich golden toning. The mint mark is very strong. Strictly premium quality and very frosty. Gold specialists recognize the importance of the 1911-D Quarter Eagle rarity for what it is, the key obstacle to assembling a 15-piece Indian $2.50 set. The condition rarity of this issue beyond the others in the series, and the obvious fact that the higher the Mint State rating the more challenging it becomes makes this date fairly unapproachable in Gem condition unless one has a strong bank account. The acquisition of a Mint State 64+ 1911-D not only requires less of an outlay, it fulfills the requirements for a really attractive looking coin, which is the prime determinant. The fields are nearly flawless with only the most minute abrasions visible near the reverse mottos, and these only with the aid of a magnifying glass. The strike details are fully brought up as well, as we have said, including the important mintmark. A milestone offering for the specialist. Pop 2; 20 finer, 16 in 65, 1 in 65+, 3 in 66 (PCGS # 7943) .
Estimated Value $30,000 - 35,000.

Realized $33,350
