Description

    1919 Standing Liberty Quarter, MS68
    Full Head Definition

    1919 25C MS68 Full Head NGC. With a mintage exceeding 11 million pieces, the 1919 Standing Liberty quarter is available in all levels of preservation. It is also, according to J.H. Cline, "one of the most available with a Full Head in the teens." Cline estimates that 25% are struck with this designation. This should not be taken to mean that high-quality 1919 quarters meeting Full Head requirements are common, especially in MS68, the grade of the present offering.

    In the above reference, Cline provides the diagnostics of full head examples. For the Type Two design, he requires the following: "a distinct line of separation of the hair from the temple, the cheekbone, and the throat area. It will also have an indentation, or hole, in the hair in the area of the ear. The three olive leaves will be complete down to the connecting point and perhaps raised in some very early strikes."

    This Superb Gem is a coin that will be appreciated by the connoisseur, with its original frosty luster and brilliant, immaculately preserved silver surfaces. Only the faintest champagne toning can be seen on either side. Not only does the head detail meet Full Head requirements, but the balance of the design elements are also fully defined, with the sole exception of two indistinct rivets on the shield. Although NGC has certified a single finer example of this date, this piece should easily satisfy even the most fastidious collector. Census: 1 in 68 Full Head, 1 finer (3/13).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 243B, PCGS# 5729)

    Weight: 6.25 grams
