Earlier researchers have claimed that between 20 and 25 individual coins remain today from the 70 pieces struck and released in 1913. We believe the actual number to be only slightly higher with an estimated 25 to 30 coins extant. The finish on 1914 proof twenties has a coarser texture than seen in previous years. When viewed by itself, the granules on a 1914 appear tiny. It is only apparent that they are "coarser" when compared to an earlier year. The surfaces of this coin have a pleasing tan-khaki coloration, and are significantly lighter than the previously offered 1913. Examination with a loupe reveals only one small shiny spot, that located on Liberty's right (facing) knee, and a hairline-thin mark across the torso that is only visible with strong magnification. A conservatively graded example of this rarely seen proof double eagle.
