    1914-D Indian Quarter Eagle, MS65
    None Finer at PCGS

    1914-D $2 1/2 MS65 PCGS. CAC. The 1914-D Indian quarter eagle claims a fairly modest mintage of 448,000 pieces, but the issue is even more elusive in high grade than that production total would suggest. In fact, the 1914-D is the most elusive issue in the series in high grade. A number of factors contribute to this condition rarity. The 1914-D was not a well-produced issue to begin with, and many examples seen are softly struck, with die buckling around the peripheries and unsightly copper alloy spots. In addition, few examples were saved by contemporary collectors, and most survivors display numerous abrasions and luster grazes in the fields.

    The present coin is a marvelous exception to the rule, with sharply detailed design elements and just a trace of die buckling evident near the obverse rim. The lustrous orange-gold surfaces are impeccably preserved, with outstanding eye appeal. This coin should find a home in the finest collection or Registry Set. Housed in a green label holder. Population: 52 in 65, 0 finer. CAC: 5 in 65, 0 finer (2/18).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2899, PCGS# 7947)

    Weight: 4.18 grams
