1917-D Liberty Standing Quarter Dollar. Type 1. PCGS graded MS-66 Full Head. CAC Approved. Well struck with nice original toning. When the Standing Liberty quarters were first released in 1916-1917, they received favorable numismatic press, and many collectors -- the overall number being relatively small at the time -- set aside pieces for their collections or as souvenirs. However, there was virtually no interest in collecting by date and mint at the time. Then in the early 1930s Wayte Raymond launched his "National" series of cardboard album pages, with clear slides. For the first time collectors had a way to conveniently store coins while examining both sides, and at the same time having openings for all of the branch mint coins including varieties. Denver Mint 1917 quarter dollars survive only because a few collectors bought them in the upper, central and lower Midwest where they were distributed by the regional Federal Reserve Banks into the local banking community.

Lustrous, mint-frosty surfaces underneath the toning, the overall appearance greatly reinforced by sharp devices. A resplendent Gem. Pop 107; 18 finer in 67 (PCGS # 5709) .
Estimated Value $2,000 - 2,100.
