    1914 Quarter Eagle, MS65
    Rich Color and Great Eye Appeal

    1914 $2 1/2 MS65 PCGS Secure. Vibrant luster and rich pumpkin-gold color with hints of blue, lavender, and red create a lovely appearance for this Gem example of Bela Lyon Pratt's sunken relief design. The coins circulated extensively in the West, but were not popular with contemporary collectors. Some people erroneously believed the nature of the design led to the coins being harbingers of germs. The design elements on this piece display a strong degree of definition and there are no marks worthy of mention. PCGS and NGC have each only awarded higher numeric grades to 3 examples (10/13).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 7KRA, PCGS# 7946)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
