Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The 1911 Philadelphia issue is similar in rarity to the others from this Mint from 1908 Motto to 1915. Most are underrated and very difficult to locate in grades above MS 64. Most of the coins seen of this issue are well struck but with rather dull luster. The level of bag marks are the primary issue with coins of this date. Gem MS 65 or MS 66 examples are very rare and seldom seen. NGC has certified 3 coins as MS 67, the last having sold at public auction for $34,500 in 2007. That coin would certainly command a higher price in today’s market.
