Description & Analysis

This issue had a modest mintage and a very high attrition rate for those that entered circulation. By the time collecting this series became popular in the mid 1930s, most 1914 D nickels had become dateless through wear.

Mint State survive in sufficient numbers that they are readily available in grades short of the gem (MS 65) level. Most are less than fully struck, but this isn't as big a problem as it would become just a few years later.

It appears that one of the several 1914/3 dies was shipped to Denver, but the resulting coins are extremely difficult to discern. There is almost no interest in this overdate, and NGC does not recognize it.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
