Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: As would be expected from its massive mintage, the 1914–S is among the most common dates of the entire series. Large groups of the date continue to be found in shipments arriving from Europe to this day. Most seen are satiny and bold, although many are found with handling marks from years of storage or from jostling about in storage bags. Most survivors are in the MS 62 to MS 65 grade range. Surprisingly, only around 150 coins have been graded as MS 66 and just a single example has been awarded the MS 67 designation. The MS 67 coin sold for $43,125 in 2008.
