Lot Description
1918-D 25C MS66 Full Head PCGS. CAC. The 1918-D is an issue that occasionally is seen with a strong strike, but more often occurs with an average to miserable impression. Fortunately this coin is a wonderful exception, blessed with a powerful strike that surpasses the marvelously well-detailed head to encompass Liberty's face and eye, the chain-mail bodice, and all but a couple of the shield rivets. Some weakness is noted on the sash and the eagle on the reverse, but overall the eye appeal is magnificent. The surfaces are silver-gray and white, with little coloration and even less sign of contact. A small die crack runs through the digits of the date, a common occurrence for the issue. Population: 17 in 66 Full Head, 0 finer (6/09).
