The last time we spent some time at one of the hot estate sales while visiting some friends we had a nice strike of gold luck. That is we were able to find some really fine examples of 1914 gold coins from various countries around the world in one purchase.
Although this was not a huge amount the gold coins were still nice examples of three very distinctive gold coin dollars all from the year 1914. This included a nice 1914 Indian ten dollar gold eagle, a 1914 France gold twenty francs and a 1914 twenty dollar St. Gaudens gold coin which was in rough shape though the others were in great shape.
The 1914 St. Gaudens offered a very good date as far as collecting coins goes in that it can be scarce compared to more common years. The condition was fairly well circulated so it would not bring the higher end of its potential value however it was still a desirable coin.
The France gold 20 francs piece also offered a tremendous luster. It is rather unusual to find these and if I remember correctly this is one of the only ones we have found over the years. The craftsmanship and the overall design really speak for themselves on this particular coin.
The $10 Indian gold eagle had a San Francisco Mint mark and offered a glorious luster. It had not seen much in the way of light of day over all those years as it was in beautiful condition. This was a really nice example.
