    1914-D Quarter Eagle, MS65
    Among the Finest at PCGS
    Key Condition Rarity

    1914-D $2 1/2 MS65 PCGS. According to the certified population figures, the 1914-D is the rarest Indian quarter eagle in Gem condition or finer. However, in terms of the frequency of auction appearances, it is the third-rarest in MS65. The 1914 Philadelphia issue is seen slightly less often at auction in high grade, and the much more famous 1911-D is seen so fine only about half as often. In either case, the 1914-D is one of the three leading condition rarities in the series, and with the exception of a single Superb Gem at NGC, this MS65 example is among the finest known. Wisps of rose and mint-green appear throughout the otherwise frosty yellow-gold surfaces. The strike is weak on the lower headdress feathers, but the reverse is sharp. Eye appeal is outstanding. Population: 51 in 65, 0 finer (6/16).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2899, PCGS# 7947)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
