Ron Guth: The 1914-S Haf Dollar is a semi-scarce issue, not quite as rare as the 1913-S, but also not quite as "common" as the 1915-S.  In Mint State, MS64 examples are seen the most often, followed by MS63's, then MS65's.  MS66 examples are very rare, with none better than MS66+.  In general, this date comes fairly well struck.


David Akers: Rarity-wise, the 1914-S is about on a par, at least in Gem condition, with the 1913-S, and it is far more rare than the 1915-S which concludes the series.
