1916 Quarter, MS62 Full Head
First-Year Key
1916 25C MS62 Full Head NGC. The 1916 and 1917 Type One Standing Liberty quarter issues are lumped together in collectors' minds, but there are many subtle differences between the two, starting with the mintage. The 1916 saw a tiny production of 52,000 pieces, while the 1917-PDS coins (both Type One and Type Two) were all issued in the millions of pieces. Specialist-dealer Jay Cline notes many of the subtle design differences in the fourth edition of his series reference:

"I would like to go on record concerning the 1916/1917 Type I's. Calling them both Type I is an atrocity with complete disregard for the difference in the head design of the two pieces. Perhaps 1916 Type I-A and 1917 Type I-B would be appropriate.

"Firstly, the sash that Miss Liberty holds across her body is incused on the 1916 and raised on the 1917 Type I. The hairstyle on the 1916 slightly overlaps onto her forehead, but does not on the 1917 Type I. The 1917 Type I has several locks of hair down her forehead and to the ear. The 1916 has straighter hair lines with a single lock above the ear that determines whether or not it is a Full Head on the 1916. 1916s are weakly struck and 1917 Type I's are the strongest strikes of the whole series. The 1916 rivets on the shield are weak; 1917 Type I rivets are strong."

Although Full Head 1916s are in the minority, PCGS has certified Full Head coins even in the AU grades, as low as AU55 Full Head. The present coin is a well-detailed MS62 specimen, with Full Head definition and vibrant mint luster. The lightly marked surfaces show a few hints of golden-tan toning, with outstanding eye appeal.
