Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: Quarter Eagles struck in 1911 have a much more granular appearance. The luster is more subdued and the strike can sometimes be weak on the eagle’s wingtip. Mid–range Mint State coins are slightly scarcer than the later issues. In the higher grades of Mint State the issue becomes quite rare. NGC reports a population of only 177 MS 65 coins and just 6 at the MS 66 level (11/12). Collectors should remember that the Indian Head Quarter series is highly collected and coins with low survival rates in Gem condition are always in high demand.
