Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: After a decade–long gap in production, the Indian Head Quarter Eagle appeared once again. The Denver Mint was brought into action and produced a quantity similar to that of earlier years. For some reason, this and later dates were saved in large numbers. The 1925–D is the most common of the series and can be found in all grades up to MS 65 with little difficulty. The luster for the issue is among the best for the series, but the date can sometimes be found weakly struck. The 1925–D is one of the only dates with an example certified as MS 67 (11/12).
