Lot Description
1917-S 25C Type One MS65 Full Head PCGS. This frosty silver-white piece is lightly tipped with pink and gold hues -- the reverse adds a bit of smoke-gray, not too dark -- thoroughly lustrous and fully struck, in the way that only the Type One quarters can be. The addition of three stars below the eagle on the Type Two pieces moved the eagle's breast across from the shield rivets in the obverse, and the rest, as they say, is history. A beautiful Gem S-mint Type One.
