Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: Coins of this date are comparable to the ones struck in 1912. As a date, this issue is very elusive in Gem MS 65, but generally available in grades below Gem. Several groups found contained many of the surviving examples and these were released over the last few decades. Because of the date’s very low mintage, the issue is quite popular with collectors. Choice and Gem examples are rare with NGC having graded 314 MS 64 and just 24 MS 65 examples to date. Only one coin has been certified at the MS 66 level. Unfortunately, the coin has not sold at public auction. The circulation strike 1914 Double Eagle is also missing in the Smithsonian National Collection. The date is represented by two examples in Proof condition.
