    1916 Standing Liberty Quarter
    Bright, Lustrous MS64 Full Head Example

    1916 25C MS64 Full Head PCGS. Of the 10 new coin designs introduced between 1908 and 1921 during the so-called Renaissance of American coinage -- the copper cent, nickel five cent, four silver denominations, and four gold -- the Standing Liberty quarter design, which debuted in 1916, was the shortest-lived of the lot, lasting only through 1930. The debut of the Washington quarter two years later, in 1932, made the 1916-1930 series of Standing Libertys a set that includes only 38 members, counting both types of 1917 and the overdate.

    The 1916 is both a first-year type and an essential member of the set, whether one chooses to include or exclude the 1918/7-S overdate. And the low mintage of 52,500 coins, many of which circulated, further increases the difficulty of the issue and its collector demand. This is a bright, vibrant example that shows the usual granular surfaces. Pale pastel iridescence further accents the remarkable luster. There are no detracting abrasions on this lovely, upper-end 1916 quarter.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2AMV, PCGS# 5705)
