Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: Like the 1914 Philadelphia issue, the 1914–D was not saved and circulated widely. Low grade examples can be found rather easily, but in Choice and Gem condition, the date is very rare. Most, but not all, examples of the date are found with ill defined details on both the obverse and reverse. A small number were struck with dies that are well prepared and should bring a premium. The 1914–D does not have the same status as the popular 1914 issue, but is actually rarer in Gem condition. An NGC MS 65 coin sold at auction in 2012 for $28,750.
