1911-D Indian Eagle. MS-62 (PCGS). Deep honey gold with satiny mint frost and bold cartwheel luster; the luster is completely unbroken on the design high points. One of just 30,100 pieces struck, <em>the lowest mintage figure in the Indian eagle series.</em> In Mint State grades, as here, the availability is nowhere near the demand for this rarity. In the <em>Guide Book, </em>just three dates in the series have a higher given value at the Mint State level than the present rarity, those being the 1920-S, the 1930-S, and the 1933; the present date is in heady company! Finer in appearance than many of the MS-62 examples currently in the numismatic marketplace and worthy of a premium bid as such.
