Lot Description
1917-D 25C Type One MS68 S Full Head NGC. As the only Type One Standing Liberty quarter certified as MS68 by NGC or PCGS regardless of Full Head status (6/10), this richly toned and incredibly beautiful example presents a singular opportunity for type and date collectors alike. The detail is excellent, not only on Liberty's head but on the small feathers of the eagle. Potent luster swirls beneath deep and gorgeous patina, which covers the surfaces in patches of peach-umber, green-gold, and muted powder-blue. Incredibly well-preserved with only a handful of minor flaws visible under magnification. From The Bob Simpson Collection.
