The obverse and reverse are fairly uniform yellow-gold with lustrous fields. The strike is sharp, and the surfaces are free of any significant nicks or bagmarks. While this particular date is the second most available branch mint issue of the series behind the 1910-D, in Choice MInt State or finer, the numbers tail off dramatically, and finding a high grade or even a Gem 1914-D presents a challenge. At the Mint State-66 level, this date is indeed quite rare, and this example is a single grade point behind the finest certified by NGC.
