Description:
Quality MS66 1914 Eagle
1914 $10 MS66 PCGS. While the San Francisco and the occasional Denver issue are most prominent in collectors' minds, the generally higher-mintage Philadelphia coins have a couple of champions, even among With Motto pieces. While the 1909 is rated slightly higher in terms of high-grade collecting difficulty, the 1914 sports the lowest mintage of any Philadelphia With Motto Saint-Gaudens eagle issue. With much of Philadelphia's gold coinage dedicated to overseas trade, particularly European transactions, it is less than coincidental that Philadelphia's smallest With Motto eagle output should come in the same year that the simmering hostilities in Europe broke out into full-fledged warfare.
Another of the 1914 Saint-Gaudens eagle's important distinctions lies in its high production values. An excellent overview of this issue's striking characteristics comes from The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens as Illustrated by the Phillip H. Morse Collection:

"The 1914 continues the tradition of matte-like surfaces seen on all tens and twenties that were struck from 1908 through 1916. Generally, the high-grade 1914 P-mints that we have seen have strong luster characteristics with thicker mint frost than seen on other Philadelphia coins, and are more suggestive of a high grade San Francisco coin. Color can vary widely from a lighter green-gold to a much deeper peach-gold. This date is also generally found with a strong strike."

The present coin exemplifies the above-listed attributes. Rich yellow-gold surfaces show occasional peach accents and a touch of green-gold at the upper reverse, and while the fields show a touch of the usual granularity, the luster is above-average even by the standards of the issue. Surfaces are carefully preserved and highly suggestive of an even finer grade, though a handful of small, wispy faults combine to preclude such a designation. Nevertheless, a marvelous Premium Gem survivor that is sure to delight its next owner. PCGS has graded just seven examples at this level and only two finer (11/08).
