    Description

    1919 Standing Liberty Quarter, MS68+
    Spectacular Color and Preservation
    Among the Finest Pieces at PCGS in the Series

    1919 25C MS68+ PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The 1919 has the distinction of encompassing six of the 17 Standing Liberty quarters across all dates and mints that PCGS has certified at the MS68 numeric level, Full Head and non-Full Head included. Those six coins include two MS68 and two MS68+ non-Full Heads, and two MS68 Full Heads (9/20). It is not clear if those six coins reported actually exist, as we have only ever seen the present piece in our auctions.

    This piece is sharp throughout the shield lines and rivets, and the often troublesome leading edge of the eagle's left (facing) wing is fully brought up. Liberty's temple exhibits mild softness and just misses an FH designation, and the border beading just left of the date is predictably soft. However, the chief attribute of this piece is not its strike, but its preservation and toning. The luminous satin surfaces are virtually untouched, and even close inspection of the surfaces confirms the exceptional preservation. Vivid rainbow toning surrounds the borders, leaving the interiors with warm champagne tinting. Eye appeal is outstanding for the issue. Population: 4 in 68 (2 in 68+), 0 finer (9/20).
