    1914-S Quarter, Dazzling MS67
    Sole Finest at PCGS

    1914-S 25C MS67 PCGS. CAC. This is an amazing coin whose spectacular brilliance gives it the appearance of just having been minted. A light touch of golden and pale fuchsia appears on the obverse; the reverse is virtually brilliant. A wispy die crack on the obverse threatens to link the point of Liberty's neck to stars 13 through 9. A truly stellar coin in every respect.

    Population Data (7/14): This is the sole finest example at PCGS, rivaled by three numerically equal coins at NGC.

    Heritage Commentary: The 1914-S, with a low mintage of 264,000 pieces (the same mintage as the much more valuable 1916-D Mercury dime), is an elusive semikey in the series. Low-grade circulated pieces can be found with little searching, but XF or finer pieces are elusive and Gem representatives are decidedly rare.

    The "depression" below Liberty's ear on the present coin, mentioned by the consignor, is in fact a die clash mark that corresponds precisely to the left (facing) edge of the eagle's neck on the reverse die. This clash mark is seen much more pronounced on the 1911-S MS68 coin previously listed in this catalog, where it is accompanied by the transference of horizontal shield lines within Liberty's ear.

    Consignor Commentary: I was struck by what I at first thought was a planchet flaw on the back of Liberty's jaw below the ear. There is a deep depression there, but as I looked at other issues in the set I saw many shared a similar characteristic, although not as prominently. Somehow, it must be due to the way the coin was struck, but I am at a loss to come up with a rational explanation.
