    Gem 1914 Proof Set
    Cent Through Half Dollar

    Five-Piece 1914 Proof Set NGC. Housed in separate NGC holders with consecutive certification numbers, which suggests that the coins are from an original set. The dime, quarter, and half dollar have a proof mintage of only 380 pieces, the lowest of the Barber series. The set includes:

    1914 Cent PR65 Red and Brown NGC. CAC. A rich orange-red Gem with scattered minute obverse flecks and an interesting slender vertical strike-through (as made) east of Lincoln's ear. Fully struck and void of marks.

    1914 Nickel PR65 NGC. An intricately struck and flawless Gem bathed in medium gunmetal-gray and golden-brown patina. The gently coruscating surfaces lack both carbon and contact.

    1914 Dime PR65+ NGC. CAC. Sea-green, wheat-gold, and lilac toning adorns this fully struck and flashy Gem. The eye appeal is imposing. An inconsequential lint mark (as coined) is noted on the field near Liberty's nose.

    1914 Quarter PR66 NGC. CAC. Splashes of jade-green, navy-blue, apricot-gold, and fire-red overlie smooth slate surfaces. The strike is close to complete, although a loupe reveals light blending on the eagle's right (facing) claw.

    1914 Half dollar PR66 NGC. A prominently mirrored Premium Gem with brilliant centers and narrow peripheral bands of autumn-brown, plum-mauve, and cobalt-blue toning. The motifs are moderately frosty although NGC has conservatively eschewed a Cameo designation. Moderate inexactness of impression is confined to the feathers near the right (facing) shield tip and the fletchings near the right claw.
