1917 Liberty Standing Quarter Dollar. Type 1. PCGS graded MS-66 Full Head. Housed in an Old Green Holder. Nice light golden toning. Fully struck. A one-in-a-thousand example of this P-Mint issue, with blazing luster that shimmers over virtually pristine surfaces. Pop 346; 60 finer (PCGS # 5707) .

Note: The standing Liberty quarter was "intended to typify in a measure the awakening interest of the country to its own protection," Mint Director von Engelken said at the time the coins first appeared early in 1917. "In the new design Liberty is shown a full-length figure, front view, with head turned toward the left, stepping forward to the gateway of the country .The left arm of the figure of Liberty is upraised, bearing the shield in the attitude of protection, from which the covering is being drawn. The right hand bears the olive branch of peace."
Estimated Value $1,250 - 1,350.

Realized $1,553
