Description

1916 Standing Liberty Quarter
AU Sharpness

1916 25C -- Polished -- NGC Details. AU. The 1916 is the first and rarest regular issue of the Standing Liberty quarter series. Difficulties in coining the new design led to production delays, and the issue was struck only during the final two weeks of the year. Examples were issued alongside 1917-dated coinage, which constituted the bulk of public hoarding of the novel design. Demand for the widely collected series ensures high grade examples will always be valuable. The present piece displays noticeable cartwheel luster on the obverse, though the reverse luster is confined to the legends and eagle. The surfaces display delicate hairlines and the types are mildly glossy. Close to brilliant though a hint of chestnut patina visits the margins.
