Description & Analysis

The 1914 Indian Head half eagle is an available date in lower Mint State categories, but it becomes quite elusive at the Gem level, and virtually unobtainable in higher numeric grades.

The 1914 half eagle boasts a small mintage of 247,000 pieces, and the date is rarer than the other Philadelphia Mint issues from 1909-1913.
