    1914 Near-Gem Matte Proof Quarter Eagle
    Bright, Sparkling Surfaces

    1914 $2 1/2 PR64 NGC. Mint records indicate that 117 proof quarter eagles were produced in 1914. Far fewer actually exist today, but there are most likely more pieces extant than the literature on the series would lead one to think. We believe that somewhere between 55 and 80 pieces exist today in all grades. The 1914 is generally considered one of the scarcer dates among matte proof quarter eagles, ranking just behind the 1915, 1909, and 1910. This piece has the coarser granularity that is usually seen on this issue, and while many 1914 shows slightly darker color than on some of the previous issues, this piece appears brighter and more uniformly yellow-gold. There are no shiny spots, as usually seen on proofs in this grade. The condition of this piece is attributable to a tiny planchet void in the left obverse field and a barely visible pinscratch in the upper right reverse field.
