Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: Despite the continuance of World War I, the production for the Indian Head Quarter Eagle actually increased somewhat from the year before. The date is quite common in all grades below the Gem level and can be found with little difficulty. Amazingly, the NGC Census contains only 10 of these coins graded MS 66 (9/17); they typically draw five figures when they go to auction.
