1911-D Indian Quarter Eagle. Strong D. MS-64 (PCGS). CAC. An incredibly lustrous example with vibrant yellow-gold patina across each side. Sharply struck and free from notable imperfection, this piece certainly approaches Gem condition in many respects. Introduced in 1908 alongside the artists similarly styled Indian half eagle, Bela Lyon Pratts Indian quarter eagle was innovative with its recessed or incuse designs. There are only 15 circulation strike issues in the Indian quarter eagle series, and most are readily obtainable in todays market, especially in lower Mint State grades. The exception is the 1911-D with just 55,680 pieces produced, making it the rarest variety in all grades. For the numismatist assembling the finest Indian quarter eagle set, this exquisite MS-64 survivor represents an important bidding opportunity.
