    1918/7-S Quarter, Lustrous AU58
    Surprisingly Well Struck

    1918/7-S 25C FS-101 AU58 NGC. An exceptionally attractive example for the grade, this near-Mint 1918/7-S Standing Liberty quarter shows no obvious wear, although faint handling evidence on each side results in an AU58 grade from NGC. Luster is satiny, tinted lilac-gold with no major abrasions. The date is sharp, and even Liberty's temple is well defined. Only the area of Liberty's ear is weak, preventing a Full Head designation. The shield rivets and the leading edge of the eagle's left (facing) wing are typically soft.

    The overdate is the only major variety in the Standing Liberty quarter series. The first example to appear at auction was in Barney Bluestone's December 1937 sale. By that time, most examples of this variety were heavily circulated or already lost to attrition. The present coin is an exception, showing nearly untouched surfaces.
