||1914-S $10 MS63 NGC. CAC. Concerning this issue, Garrett and Guth write in their Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins: "While certainly overshadowed by some of the better-known key dates, the 1914-S issue deserves recognition in its own right." The issue is rather elusive in Mint State when compared with its more available Philadelphia counterparts, and becomes conditionally challenging in MS63 or finer condition. This representative exhibits satiny green and rose-gold hues over each side, with only minor, uniformly dispersed abrasions. The eagle's facing shoulder is not fully defined, though the strike is otherwise well-executed. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
