David Akers (1975/88): The 1914 is an underrated issue, nearly as much so as the 1909. In the low Mint State grades, i.e. MS-60 to 62, it is not difficult to find, but in MS-63 and MS-64, there are a whole lot fewer around than one might think. True gems are very rare and I am sure that only a very few exist that are better than MS-65. In all respects, this is a much more difficult issue to find than the 1910, 1912, 1913, or 1915, although it is not as rare as the 1909.

The 1914 is typically very sharply struck, and the surfaces are often very slightly granular like the 1910 and 1912. Lustre varies from only average to excellent, but it would be correct to say that most 1914 eagles have very good lustre. Color is usually a rich greenish gold although light medium orange gold (or even a combination of the two) is also seen. The 1914 is always fully frosty.
