Description:
1916 Standing Liberty Quarter
MS63 Full Head, Remarkably Clean Surfaces
1916 25C MS63 Full Head PCGS. Although both the Walking Liberty half dollar and Standing Liberty quarter debuted in 1916, one saw a major redesign in 1917, the other a minor one. The D and S mintmarks on the half dollar were moved from the 1916 obverse to the reverse on some 1917-dated pieces, but otherwise the design remained the same. The bare-breasted, full-length Liberty on the quarters of 1916 was more martial in appearance than on the half dollar, holding a shield in one hand, an olive branch in the other. On the redesign of 1917, Liberty's chest was covered with a more-military chain-mail coat (World War I was raging at the time); the redesigned reverse shows three of the 13 stars formerly at the sides moved beneath the eagle, which was consequently shifted upward in the field. There are other subtle design changes as well.
Although the 1916 Standing Liberty quarter is a member of a two-year type along with the 1917-PDS Type One issues, the low-mintage 1916 is much in demand from set completists as well as aficionados of key coins in general. This remarkably well-preserved example appears much finer than one might expect from the grade. The surfaces are bright and nearly brilliant with just a hint of golden at the margins. The strike details are strong throughout, as expected, and the mattelike surfaces show no obvious or detracting abrasions.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 242Y, PCGS# 5705)
