Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: As can be seen from the rather sharp drop in mintage, the 1914 is one of the more scarce coins for the series. It is considered the second best date and is difficult to obtain in any level of Mint State. The price of a 1914 Indian Head Quarter Eagle jumps rather sharply from one grade to the next and is a favorite of re–submitters. The population numbers should be viewed with some skepticism, as many of the tags have not been returned to update the population reports. As would be expected, the 1914 is very rare in Gem condition, with just one or two trading hands at auction each year. Only two coins have been certified as MS 66 (11/12).
