Breen states that 1914 proofs have a "coarse sandblast finish," and indeed the surfaces do appear to have slightly larger granules than does the NGC Proof 66 1913, or it may just seem so because of the pronounced difference in color between the two coins. This piece exhibits light hairlining across the surface, and while not patently obvious, the effect is just enough to account for the grade. (NGC ID# 26H3, PCGS# 9211)
