Lot Description
1917-S 25C Type One MS66 Full Head NGC. This is a remarkably attractive and technically impressive example of the Type One Standing Liberty quarter, which had a mintage of under 2 million pieces. All of the design elements are completely struck, including the shield rivets and the eagle's breast feathers. The lovely satin luster illuminates silver surfaces with just a touch of rose color on the obverse. A few wispy marks are noted in the reverse fields, but the overall eye appeal is solid. Census: 64 in 66 Full Head, 16 finer (1/11).
