Owner's Comments

O'Connor. The 1911-D is a relatively common date up through MS 65. Like many coins in the set, this date tends to be overlooked in gem and above. Our example is well struck, has nice brown and russet toning and good luster underneath. A very nice example of the issue with only four graded higher.

Expert Comments

David Akers: Despite the low mintage of only 695,080 pieces, the 1911-D is fairly obtainable in all grades up to Very Choice Uncirculated. Even Gems are only moderately rare, but most of them are somewhat lackluster and not particularly attractive...
