1918-D Quarter, MS67 Full Head
1918-D 25C MS67 Full Head PCGS. Ex: Simpson. This 1918-D is
what many Standing Liberty quarter collectors dream of acquiring
but seldom have such a chance. It is quite simply one of the finest
1918-D quarters known, being one of just three Full Head pieces
certified in MS67 with none finer (11/20). Only one other 1918-D in
this grade appears in our Auction Archives, a coin offered in our
September 2017 Long Beach Signature, which realized $40,800. That
piece set an auction record for the date, and if there was ever
another example to challenge that auction record it is without a
doubt the Simpson coin offered here.
Incredible Luster and Appeal
Liberty's temple and the date numerals are bold, while luster beams from the fields and design recesses. The surfaces are untouched -- brilliant with just a few splashes of sun-gold toning. Slight strike softness on the shield rivets is virtually unavoidable on the 1918-D, and this coin excels in all other respects. Population: 3 in 67 Full Head, 0 finer (11/20).
