1914-D Five Dollar, MS66
Possibly the Finest Known
Ex: O'Neal

1914-D $5 MS66 PCGS. The 1914-D Indian half eagle is a scarcer date in the series, and it is extremely rare in Premium Gem condition. The coin offered here is tied with two other MS66 examples as the finest certified at PCGS, while NGC shows a single coin at the Premium Gem level, with none finer (6/12). This coin has realistic claims to the title of "Finest Known," as we believe it is superior to the long-known PCGS-graded MS66 example in their census. That coin has a planchet flaw on the reverse, below OF, which does not affect the grade, but can be detected on close inspection. The NGC-graded MS66 example has not been available for comparison, and the source of the third PCGS coin is unknown; it must have been recently graded, and may represent an upgrade or crossover of the NGC example.
This coin is a magnificent Premium Gem, with pristine surfaces free of even the smallest imperfection. All design elements are displayed in razor-sharp detail except the mintmark, which is characteristically bold, but with a "blobby" appearance. The surfaces are a delightful orange-gold color, with attractive hints of rose when the coin is angled in the light. Vibrant mint luster radiates from both sides, showing off the coin's vivid color to good advantage. This coin possesses tremendous eye appeal to complement the high technical grade, and it should find a home in the finest collection of half eagles. Population: 3 in 66, 0 finer (6/12).
Ex: The Jim O'Neal Collection of $5 Indians (Heritage, 1/2011), lot 5151.(Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 28DV, PCGS# 8528)
