Description & Analysis

1914-S cents are scarce across all grades, with many circulated pieces being marred by corrosion. Mint State examples are very scarce, and fully red pieces are extremely so. As is typical for cents of this period, the well struck ones typically are toned, while most red coins are a bit soft.

The 1914-S cent illustrated is a hybrid, in that its obverse is sharp from an unworn die, while its reverse shows moderate die erosion and areas of incomplete strike. It is nevertheless an outstanding example of this rare issue.
