About 38-Coin Set Standing Liberty Quarters Full Head
In 1916, Hermon MacNeil's Standing Liberty quarter debuted, marking the beginning of a relatively short series that was in production until only 1930. While its run was brief, the Standing Liberty series saw the release of several interesting and scarce issues.
The first-year issue, made only at the Philadelphia Mint, was struck to the tune of only 52,000 pieces and has become the definite series key date. By 1917, the design had caused a controversy concerning public decency, as Miss Liberty?s right breast is exposed on the first manifestation of the design. The United States Mint modified the design during 1917, covering Miss Liberty?s breast with a chain mail. This design changed created two varieties during 1917, with Type I classifying Standing Liberty quarters from 1916 and 1917 bearing the original design and Type II quarters referring to all made from 1917 and on with the revised design.
Also in 1917, the reverse design with the flying eagle was slightly modified, resulting in the relocation of three stars (of 13 on the reverse) being moved from near the rim to just under the eagle. In 1925, the date on the pedestal upon which Miss Liberty stands was recessed into design at the same location, making it more difficult for the date to become completely obliterated through typical wear.
In addition to the rare 1916 Standing Liberty quarter, there are several scarce issues from the series. These include the 1921, 1923-S, 1927-D, and 1927-S. The 1918-S 8 Over 7 is a very scarce variety and the most popular of the series. No proof Standing Liberty quarters were struck.
About CDN Prices
All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.
CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.
Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.
Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.
