This Denver date is famous as the rarest of the entire Indian quarter eagle series, both in terms of the surviving population and even more so in terms of non-availability in the desirable highest grades. The present coin offers amazing deeply glowing red-gold luster of unusually splendid visual quality that complements a meticulously detailed strike of exceptional precision. The D mintmark is clearly visible, perhaps in the upper 50% of definition of those we have seen. Only a few minor marks are scattered about that serve to limit the grade.

Some of this date's rarity in modern times might be traceable to the scarcity of determined collectors of U.S. gold by date and mintmark through the 1950s. When gold coins sold for a few cents over face, there was little incentive to seek out specific dates and when such attention was paid to the Indian series, the supply of high grade coins had dwindled grievously.
