Fine. Ex - Stack's "65th Anniversary Sale", October 17-19,
2000, Lot 804, not plated, sold for $146.50
"1914-S, with its very low
mintage, has long attracted the attention of Barber collectors. Fortunately,
being late in the series a fair number were saved in mint state probably by
B. Max Mehl and his colleagues. This date comes with a decent obverse strike
and nice luster, but the reverse details will often be soft.
When certification began
in 1986 a number of 1914-S's were submitted early and the coin only ranked
25th in the last Edition. In fact, only 10 pieces have been added to the pop
reports since then and some of these undoubtedly were resubmissions."
The finest Uncirculated example graded by
PCGS is a single MS-67.
