The O'Neal 1914 Eagle, MS65

1914 $10 MS65 PCGS. CAC. Ex: O'Neal. 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 hardly 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.
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 modest faults are present on each side. PCGS has graded just nine numerically finer pieces (11/09).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28H2, PCGS# 8875)
