Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The 1911-D is the undisputed condition rarity of the Indian Head $10 series. Many great collections have lacked this date in gem condition. The Smithsonian examples grade MS 62 at best. Just a few coins have been graded as MS 65 and none above that level! The Norweb coin was saved at the time of issue and stands as one of the finest known. The coin sold for $132,000 in 1988, a price record that stood for nearly 20 years. The coin resides in a prominent Eastern collection. The 1911-D Quarter Eagle captures most of the attention for 1911-D coinage, but that issue pales in comparison to the 1911-D Indian Ten Dollar.
