1914 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle. MS-64 (NGC). This low mintage date from Philadelphia is often overlooked by collectors. The reported mintage of 95,250 would make this scarce from the get go, but when the mass meltings of the 1930s wrapped up in 1937, there were perhaps 3,000-4,000 left of this issue. While a few dozen gems have been certified, these turn up on sparse occasions and bring substantial premiums. This MS-64 should be considered by date collectors seeking to build a high grade collection.
