Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The 1926 Indian Head Quarter Eagle is among the most common issues for the series. The date can be found in all grades including MS 65. All of the late date (1925–D to 1929) issues are usually purchased as examples for the type. Superb examples are very rare and none have been graded MS 67 (11/12).
