Lot Description
1921 25C MS 67 Full Head PCGS. The 1921 Standing Liberty quarter is an interesting issue that exhibits numerous striking anomalies. The paucity of pieces produced seems to account for the fact that Mint State survivors come better struck than those of most other issues in the series. Whereas many extant Standing Liberty quarters display striking softness through the top of the date, the 1921 exhibits this feature over the bottom of the digits. Finally, both the first and second 1 in the date are slightly different when compared to other issues. The present specimen exhibits all of these features, although the incompleteness of strike on the date is largely confined to the first digit. As alluded to earlier, the razor sharp strike is free of criticism. Pleasing golden-rose iridescence overlays the frosty faces and speaks volumes for this coin's originality. Only visible under a loupe, the toning spot atop the inner shield may be important for pedigree purposes. To date, this is the single finest certified survivor of this popular and elusive P-mint delivery (9/99). Ex: PCGS Registry "East Coast Collector," The Finest Known Set of Standing Liberty Quarters.
