Breen states that 1914 proofs have a "coarse sandblast finish," and indeed this coin has that appearance. The surfaces show no marks or shiny spots that could be considered distracting, and as far as pedigree identifiers are concerned the only one we see is a very light, kidney-shaped alloy stain across a couple of rays of the sun on the left side of the reverse. A splendid proof and undoubtedly one of the finest pieces known. Population: 6 in 65, 6 finer (7/98). (NGC ID# 26H3, PCGS# 9211)
