Outstanding MS66 1914-D Five Dollar Indian
One of the Highest Graded Coins in the Series

1914-D $5 MS66 PCGS. Although not a San Francisco Mint product, the 1914-D is nonetheless a scarcer issue among the Indian Head half eagle series, with a skimpy mintage of 247,000 pieces. In 2006, gold pundits Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth noted that this issue--the last of the circulating five dollar gold pieces struck in Denver--"is a scarcer date, and is frequently found well struck even on the feather tips and eagle's chest and wings. The surfaces are less granular and more lustrous than seen on many dates of this series." The present piece is an exceptional exemplar, not only by the standards of the issue, but for the series as a whole. And in the entire series PCGS has certified only 13 Superb Gem pieces--12 in MS67 and a lone representative in MS68 (3/10).
This coin offers so many superlative attributes that we hesitate to single one out to the detriment of the others. The surfaces are remarkably free of even the most picayune abrasions, from the exposed open fields on the reverse to the high points of the Indian's cheek on the obverse. Neither there nor in the left obverse field nearby--the focal points of the obverse--are there any abrasions above the microscopic sort. The color is a pleasing honey-gold laced with tinges of lilac iridescence. Generous luster and a bold strike round out the positive attributes of this Premium Gem. A shallow planchet flaw appears beneath OF on the reverse, but as a prestrike anomaly it does not affect the grade. More importantly, it fails to affect the enormous appeal of this stunning coin. A spectacular opportunity for the date collector to acquire a top-flight 1914-D half eagle. Population: 2 in 66, 0 finer (3/10).(Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 28DV, PCGS# 8528)
