Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: This date is the undisputed “KEY” to the series. Because of its low mintage and survival rate, this date brings a healthy price in circulated condition. The 1911–D Indian Head Quarter Eagle has by far the lowest mintage and it seems that surprisingly few were saved. The issue is usually well struck and is peculiar in that nearly every genuine example is seen with a pronounced wire rim on the obverse. This feature is a diagnostic of the date, and is even seen on examples that have a very weak D mint mark. It is recommended to avoid the weak D examples of this date. The resale value is usually quite soft. The 1911–D is not the rarest Indian Head Quarter Eagle in MS 65 condition, but it is certainly the most expensive. The date is extremely rare in superb condition. Just two examples have been graded by NGC at that level (11/12).
