1916 Standing Liberty Quarter, MS65+
1916 25C MS65+ Full Head PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The 1916
Standing Liberty quarter is one of the chief "stoppers" to a
complete Guide Book set, regardless of the grade of the set.
While the overall survivorship is significant for a coin with a
mintage of only 52,000 pieces, the frequency with which this date
comes up for auction hardly dampens the strong collector demand,
which is unyielding for coins in Gem Full Head condition.
Luminous Full Head Registry Coin
The present example is brilliant and frosty, and Liberty's head definition is indeed sharp for this issue. The date numerals are also bold, and the reverse eagle is so well struck that by itself it is not distinguishable from those of sharp 1917-dated coins. The preservation is equally impressive on this 1916, with no distracting abrasions. Only six other Gem Full Head coins have earned a Plus designation from PCGS. Population: 92 in 65 (7 in 65+) Full Head, 27 finer (4/20).
Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 242Y, PCGS# 5705)
Weight: 6.25 grams
Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
