1914-D Quarter Eagle, MS65
1914-D $2 1/2 MS65 PCGS Secure. Ex: Donald A. Kutz.
Previously the 1914-D entry in The Donald A. Kutz $2 1/2 Indian
Collection, which rates as the PCGS Number One All-Time Finest
Registry Set for the series; recently the collector "sidegraded" by
adding The Shrike Set's MS65 PCGS, CAC example. (See our September
2011 Long Beach Signature Auction 1159, lot 4252.)
Conditionally Rare in Gem
As of (6/12), PCGS has graded 40 examples of the 1914-D two and a half in MS65 with no Plus or numerically finer pieces. Combined with the NGC figures (including a single numerically finer coin), the 1914-D emerges as a borderline condition rarity in Gem. This may not seem impressive, but consider that every other Indian quarter eagle issue has at least one PCGS-certified example in MS66 or better, and except for the 1911-D, the 1914-D has the lowest PCGS population of Gem-and-better pieces. If the 1911-D is the obvious all-grades key date, the 1914-D is the key in high grades.
This elegant Gem example shows a great mix of technical merits and eye appeal, pointing to why the coin was included in the Donald A. Kutz Collection in the first place. Yellow-orange and wheat outer tones also appear at the inner reverse, while the obverse has a light, almost canary-gold hue. Excellent detail with a single readily visible flaw over the eagle's wings but only wispy marks elsewhere.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2899, PCGS# 7947)
