Description

1914-D Quarter Eagle, MS65
Conditionally Rare in Gem

1914-D $2 1/2 MS65 PCGS Secure. Ex: Donald A. Kutz. Previously the 1914-D entry in The Donald A. Kutz $2 1/2 Indian Collection, which rates as the PCGS Number One All-Time Finest Registry Set for the series; recently the collector "sidegraded" by adding The Shrike Set's MS65 PCGS, CAC example. (See our September 2011 Long Beach Signature Auction 1159, lot 4252.)
As of (6/12), PCGS has graded 40 examples of the 1914-D two and a half in MS65 with no Plus or numerically finer pieces. Combined with the NGC figures (including a single numerically finer coin), the 1914-D emerges as a borderline condition rarity in Gem. This may not seem impressive, but consider that every other Indian quarter eagle issue has at least one PCGS-certified example in MS66 or better, and except for the 1911-D, the 1914-D has the lowest PCGS population of Gem-and-better pieces. If the 1911-D is the obvious all-grades key date, the 1914-D is the key in high grades.
This elegant Gem example shows a great mix of technical merits and eye appeal, pointing to why the coin was included in the Donald A. Kutz Collection in the first place. Yellow-orange and wheat outer tones also appear at the inner reverse, while the obverse has a light, almost canary-gold hue. Excellent detail with a single readily visible flaw over the eagle's wings but only wispy marks elsewhere.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2899, PCGS# 7947)
