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 coin illustrated is an outstanding example of this rare issue.
