Lot Description
1914-S $10 MS64 PCGS. It is easy to overlook the 1914-S among the many condition rarities and low-mintage dates in the Saint-Gaudens eagle series. Yet specialists know that Gem and better representatives are hard to come by--there are just 26 in the combined certified population (10/10)--and even near-Gems such as the present piece are very scarce. This shining yellow-orange example is well struck for the type, if softly detailed at the hair over Liberty's ear, and the overall eye appeal is great for the grade. Just a few shallow horizontal ticks on the portrait preclude a finer designation.
