Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The 1927 Indian Head Quarter Eagle is similar in rarity to the above two issues and can be found in all grades below MS 66. Most are well struck with excellent luster. The date is ideal for Type coin collectors. Superb coins are surprisingly rare with just nine coins certified by NGC as MS 66 (11/12).
