    1916 Standing Liberty Quarter, MS66
    Highly Prized First-Year Rarity

    1916 25C MS66 PCGS. CAC. Counting the Peace dollar denomination, there were four U.S. silver coinage designs introduced between 1916 and 1921: the Mercury dime, Standing Liberty quarter, and Walking Liberty half, all in 1916, and the silver dollar in 1921. In Gem grade, the low-mintage 1916 Standing Liberty quarter is by far the most expensive. The current online PCGS Price Guide lists the 1916 dime in MS65 at $92; the 1916 Philadelphia half in the same grade at $2,300; a Gem 1921 Peace dollar at $2,250; and the 1916 Standing Liberty quarter in Gem grade at $27,500 without Full Head, or $39,000 with Full Head. Interestingly, all of these four type-coin prices are, give or take, inversely proportional to the original mintages. For example, the 1916 quarter, at 52,500 coins, was struck in an amount about one-twelfth that of the 1916 half dollar, at 608,000 pieces -- and a Gem quarter costs about 12 times as much. This first-year rarity displays vibrant, frosted mint luster and toning that gradually increases in intensity toward the rims. A wonderful, high-grade example. Population: 7 in 66, 0 finer (9/13).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 242Y, PCGS# 5704)
