314, illustrated, sold for $3,680.00
The 1914/3-S overdate was first reported in 1997. The overdate is
barely visible and shows but a trace of the top of a 3 to the left of the top of
the 4. Experts await the discovery of a high-grade example to confirm
the existence of this controversial overdate.
The 1914/3 overdate dies from
all three Mints are believed to be from a single working hub (a hub has
raised design elements and is used to create the dies that strike the
coins). This is in contrast to the 1918/7-D Nickels, which were made by
double-hubbing a working die.
The finest examples graded by PCGS are 20 MS-66's.
