    Nice find. What is on the holder?
    I like the Improperly mixed alloy.

    AU 55, do you think it’ll bring any premium over the regular strike 1914 P? Hard to gauge and nobody will attribute it. I didn’t realize until yesterday how much contention there was surrounding 1914 die varieties…

    Have you tried ICG or ANACS?
    If all you are looking for is the attribution on the holder. I would check them.
    It won't garner the same resale value as an NGC or PCGS though.

    I won't offer an opinion on grading from pictures/photos, but if it helps, :

    Wholesale levels now- 20=$50, 40=525, 45=600, 50=780, 55=700.

    For regular 14, the range from a 20 to a 55 is $18-$30. Yes, I would say it brings a premium.

    Comparative info only: CAC has a pop of14, the lowest Grade is 62. Wampum is multiples above the amounts I stated.

    I was very surprised to find out ANACS didn’t attribute this variety, I’m not a huge fan of ICG but I may check with them. It’s a straight graded PCGS 55, I might just leave it as is and add a sticker to the back like I see on HA here and there.

    Can you link me to where you found this info? I can’t find much besides varietyvista

    You are welcome to visit my home....(don't hit me). The info is up to date Greysheet, up to date CAC Greysheet, up to date CAC pop reports, etc. Takes a few $ to view in real time all of their mailed publications. You could also navigate (and join) the CAC Boards, and present the question in a forum, and most likely get a response from the front office, including the Greysheet rep., who has a thread on pricing questions/considerations in the Greysheet publications.

    It is in a PCGS 55. The best path, is contact PCGS and ask for re-consideration. So it may cost more, or may down grade. Or, it may upgrade. Does it really matter, though? I also suggest calling CAC and ask if the coin/variety would be accepted for evaluation below MS 60. For the cost of a PCGS review...and realizing that cost all in may be $75+ all in, and for $16.00 for a CAC evaluation, why not? You are still multiples ahead, if the variety is added. Otherwise, leave it in the present casket. I can not see the piece in hand, so I can not offer and opinion of the validity of the variety.
