Following a decade-long hiatus, production of the Indian Head quarter eagle was revived in 1925. Indian Head quarter was designed by Bela Lyon Pratt and was the one of only two U.S. coin issues to feature an incuse design, the other being the Indian Head half eagle, also designed by Pratt. These incuse coins were panned by the public, which feared germs would be caught inside the sunken design. Those fears, as you may have guessed, were unfounded.

Only the Denver mint produced quarter eagles in 1925, and a decently large number of coins were made – 578,000, which is about an average output for any single year in the series. The value of a 1925 Indian Head quarter eagle is roughly $280 for a piece in Very Fine-30 condition. Notably, 1925 was also the first year for this series that no proof issues were struck.

Bear in mind that relatively few Indian Head quarter eagles were saved in the higher grades, which makes this type relatively scarce in the uncirculated grades. Therefore, you should consider buying certified examples of the uncirculated quarter eagles to ensure that you are buying coins that are truly mint state in quality.
