    1916 Standing Liberty Quarter
    MS66 Full Head
    Sought-After First-Year Issue

    1916 25C MS66 Full Head PCGS. A blush of light golden toning accents the frosty, beautifully preserved surfaces of this Full Head Premium Gem. The strike is excellent for the issue, showing above-average definition on the central gown folds, shield lines, and around the borders.

    Population Data (5/14): PCGS has certified just 11 Full Head examples in this grade and only four numerically finer. NGC has seen 18 in this grade and only three numerically finer.

    Heritage Commentary: The 1916 Standing Liberty quarters were struck in December of that year from dies prepared several months earlier in July. The 1916 quarters lack the sharpened details of those struck with the modified 1917 dies. High-grade survivors exhibiting Full Head detail are in the significant minority, and even they are somewhat softly detailed overall, as the 1916 dies lacked sharp engraving in the first place. Well-detailed examples of this early mintage are rarely encountered and draw strong attention from specialists.

    Provenance: Bill Nagle (5/2011).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2AMV, PCGS# 5705)
