History, Information, and Value of 1927 Indian Quarter Eagle Gold
Value of 1927 Indian Head Quarter Eagle
The 1927 quarter eagle has the lowest mintage of the _short-set years from 1925 to 1929, and the general eye appeal tends to be above average. Most coins are sharply struck, with just minimal traces of die buckling at the obverse of either side. Though the majority of coins show trivial scatter marks, the fields are overall very clean. The color ranges from medium gold to green and pinkish hues, sometimes with mint-made copper spots that do little to affect the value. Examples usually feature attractive, frosty luster that is consistent with the other Philadelphia Mint issues of the 1920s.
Despite a comparatively low mintage, the 1927 is of similar rarity to the surrounding 1920s issues. Examples grading MS-64 are common and can be acquired for just a small premium over the gold value. Gems are scarcer but still are readily available as there are thought to be around 1,100 coins remaining in grades of MS-65 or finer. The most pristine examples of this issue are found at the MS-66 grade, with an estimated population of less than 50 coins.
The text on the Indian Head Quarter Eagle reads as follows. Obverse: LIBERTY; Date; B.L.P. | Reverse: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; E PLURIBUS UNUM; 2 1/2 DOLLARS; IN GOD WE TRUST
If the text on your coin is not consistent with the text above, you either have a counterfeit, or you have a silver round with gold toning. Silver rounds were introduced recently that bear this same design. With gold toning covering them, it could be easy to confuse your coin for a gold coin.
