1916 Standing Liberty Quarter NGC MS67FH

The 1916 is unique in the series in several respects, not least among them the fact that it is the only date showing, what was at the time of issue, a knowingly unfinished design. Although nearly identical to MacNeil’s original models, the Mint produced a significantly lower relief coin with an inferior level of sharpness. Trial impressions of this version were initially approved by Mint Director F.H. von Engelken, but correspondence suggests that the director had later become unhappy with the softness of the obverse details. By the time improvements were made to the sharpness of the design, the engraving department was preparing 1917-dated hubs and the improvements were only implemented on hubs for 1917 coinage. A token quantity of 52,000 Standing Liberty quarters was struck at the tail end of 1916. This issue is now regarded as one of the most significant key dates in the series. In hand, the surfaces are considerably lighter and more lustrous looking. The NGC population stands at just four with none higher.

1918/7-S Standing Liberty Quarter PCGS MS63

Immensely Popular

As the most prominent nonstandard variety within the Standing Liberty quarter series, the 1918/7-S overdate enjoys perpetual high demand. A single obverse die first received an impression from a 1917-S (Type Two) working hub, but when it went back into the press, it received an impression from a 1918-S hub instead of one with a matching date. On the last digit of the date, the 8 was laid over the top of the 7, creating the overdate feature. Alan Herbert’s “Coin Clinic” column for the January 16, 2001 edition of Numismatic News offers an intriguing perspective on the rarity of the 1918/7-S quarter. In response to the question “Is there any special reason why the overdate is relatively rare?” he offers this answer: “One reason given, but mostly overlooked is the notation that the single die involved in this overdate cracked through the date at a fairly early stage and apparently was taken out of service after only a relatively small number were struck. Since die life in that era was not very high to begin with, this didn’t leave very many of the coins to reach circulation.”

1916 Standing Liberty Quarter NGC MS65FH

Sweet 16

From a remarkably low 20th century mintage of 52,000 pieces, the 1916 Standing Liberty quarter is an acknowledged key to the series. First-year type collectors have no other option to choose from, as no quarters were struck at the branch mints in 1916. The Type One design as modified the following year to cover Liberty’s torso with a coat of chain mail, another important consideration for type purposes. Thus, the 1916 is prized by collectors of several different collecting disciplines and examples are always in high demand.  The one offered here is lightly toned on the reverse and features satiny surfaces. It is also brighter in hand than seen in our images.

1924-S Standing Liberty Quarter PCGS MS66FH

Just One Graded Higher

The availability of the 1924-S quarter in Full Head plummets above MS65, where it becomes one of the lesser-known condition rarities of the series. Coins are rarely seen in MS66 Full Head and are nearly unknown finer at PCGS. In fact, this is one of only sixteen MS66’s recognized by PCGS with a single (MS67) example graded higher. This one is very nicely detailed and exhibits plentiful luster.
