    Remarkable Gem 1914-D Quarter Eagle

    1914-D $2 1/2 MS65 PCGS. The 1914-D Indian quarter eagle had a total production of 448,000 coins, a nominal amount that is completely unremarkable within the series context. Nonetheless, the recently published Akers Handbook on 20th century gold coins says succinctly concerning the issue:

    "The 1914-D is the premier rarity in the Indian Quarter Eagle series in grades at or above MS-65. Low-grade Mint State examples are not all that difficult to find, but the population drops off markedly beginning in MS-64. A handful of MS-65s are listed at the major certification services, and NGC even reports a single Superb Gem ... ."

    The present coin is one of 39 MS65 pieces certified at PCGS, with none finer (9/09). Even, khaki-gold coloration appears throughout, with remarkably smooth, softly frosted surfaces and tremendous eye appeal. The strike is somewhat weak at the lower headdress feathers, as often seen. Much more importantly, the Indian's cheek and the exposed fields are virtually free of even tiny contact marks. Some small areas of darker color appear on the upper reverse. A memorable presentation of this conditionally elusive rarity.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2899, PCGS# 7947)
