Lot 2174
1916 Liberty Standing Quarter Dollar. NGC graded MS-65 Full Head. The key date in the Standing Liberty Quarter Series and the first year of issue. This Gem is pure, frosty white, without a trace of toning on either side. Uncirculated examples of this date are very rare because virtually the entire mintage entered circulation before the public was even made aware of their existence! Technically (and legally), this type should not even have been introduced until 1917, since Barber's design type didn't officially expire until the end of 1916. In fact, the Barber Quarter enjoyed a full run in 1916, ending with a total mintage for the year of over eight million coins (Philadelphia and Denver combined), compared to only 52,000 examples of the 1916 Standing Liberty type. PCGS reports 52 at this grade level, 2 in MS-66FH, and only 3 in MS-67FH.
Estimated Value $19,000 - 21,000.

1918 Liberty Standing Quarter Dollar. PCGS graded MS-66 Full Head. Light golden toning and intense luster characterize this gorgeous Quarter. The strike is superb, with full detailing on Liberty's head and even on the rivets of the shield. A rather impressive coin that represent great value in today's market. PCGS reports only 19 in this grade, and only 8 finer (the best being a single MS-68). Thus, the quality-conscious buyer has very few opportunities to purchase this date in this remarkable state of preservation.

Lot 2198
1918-S Liberty Standing Quarter Dollar. 8 over 7. ICG graded AU-50. Here is the key date to the series, discovered in 1937 long after most had entered circulation. Searching has turned up a few in mint state, but this date remains very rare in all grades. Apparently the crush was on in late 1917 to produce lots of quarters. Anthony Comstock and his cohorts had forced the mints to change the original MacNeil design of a bare breasted Liberty by covering over her with a chain mail top. Philadelphia had to produce new master hubs, barely in time to get new dies shipped to Denver and San Francisco, further dies had to be produced for 1918, which were made late in 1917 for shipment to the branch mints. Apparently one die was first struck by the 1917 hub, then somehow mixed back in with the dies and received a second blow from the 1918 hub, creating the overdate.

Here is a charming example of this classic overdate. The strike is nearly complete for this die as the head, about half struck, has 2 leaves visible in Liberty's crown and the shield lacks only a few rivets. The important overdate feature is quite clear. No signs of cleaning or mishandling with the surfaces overlaid with natural antique toning. A famous rarity that will no doubt bring strong interest from collectors of the Standing Liberty Quarter series.
Estimated Value $6,500 - 7,000.
