Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): The 1914-D is the second most common branch mint issue after the 1910-D but it bears little or no resemblance to the 1910-D when it comes to rarity. In that respect, it is more closely associated with the 1909, 1914, and 1916-S although it is more rare than any of them in MS-64 or better condition. Virtually all known examples of this issue grade MS-63 or less, and true gems are almost never available. Kruthoffer's was by far the best I have seen and was nearly perfect.

The 1914-D is always fully frosty and very sharply struck. The surfaces have a trace of fine granularity but it is not generally as noticeable as it is on the other Denver Mint issues or even most Philadelphia Mint issues in the series. Lustre is usually good to very good and on the rarest of occasions (cf. the Duckor specimen) exceptional. Color is almost always the same, light greenish gold with rose highlights, but a very few have more orange shades.
