Description 1911-D $2 1/2 -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. Unc. Strong D. This Denver issue is unquestionably the key date to designer Bela Lyon Pratt's quarter eagle set. With just 55,680 coins struck -- less than one-quarter of the mintage of the next-rarest date in the series -- this issue is widely pursued and is often the final piece in specialists' collections. The present coin exhibits Uncirculated design detail and lacks any singularly distracting abrasions. Medium-gold paints the surfaces, which show splashes of green and rose iridescence. Both sides are somewhat subdued from the noted cleaning, but significant luster remains in the recesses. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3818.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
