This listing is for a 1916 Standing Liberty quarter certified problem free PO1 by ANACS. It is a solid and accurately attributed example of this very rare first year issue Standing Liberty Quarter.The coin is well worn with none of the date showing. It is a nice steel grey toned original example with excellent eye appeal. We do note a couple of light scratches that were deemed acceptable for this grade level, which are also highly magnified by our pics. This is an issue that ranks among the most desirable of US coins, and as such makes even dateless examples an attractive and affordable choice. However we recommend caution when picking up a dateless example.
I have seen several dateless 1917 quarters sell as 1916's sitting in incorrectly attributed slabs from all major grading companies. Without exception all 1916's should have the following attributes as outlined below. For quick first glance attribution no 1916 Standing Liberty quarter should ever have bold circular shield rivets.A dateless PO01 1917 will still have stronger shield rivets then even an MS67FH 1916 (so a dateless accurately attributed 1916 will definitely have none or virtually none). If you see strong shield rivets you are looking at a 1917. The 1916 can be easily identified by multiple diagnostics that make positive identification unquestionable. As seen in the 3rd pic this coin can be identified by its head intersecting into the beaded boarder design, the single hair curl, weak shield rivets on the far side of the shield, the J shaped drapery, and (not highlighted) also the position of the fold line in the scarf of her extended right arm. The fold line on low grade 1916's is always to the far left of the elbow and the 1917's always have its center point offset leaning more to the right it. This should be a great opportunity to complete your set! Please see the pics for more details. The item "1916 ANACS PO1 Standing Liberty Quarter" is in sale since Wednesday, October 31, 2018.
