Condition Notes  
Bright gold and nicely detailed strike with the D mint mark full (a bit hard to see in this NGC holder), an attractive example of this scarce "key" to Indian Quarter Eagles
Commentary  
The 1911-D Indian $2.50 is a key year-mintmark piece for collectors. It is generally scarce, and examples in AU58 or higher grades are in great demand. One of the principal considerations is the strength of the mintmark, with Weak D examples being much less desirable and valued separately in the CPG.
