1916 Type 1 NGC VF-30. 1916 Type 1 NGC VF-30.
Lot Title: 1916 Type 1 NGC VF-30.
Description: Pale beige patina embraces nearly the entire coin, with portions of the outer reaches of the obverse searching for deeper ashy-grey coloration. A fairly strong date shows minor fade toward the tops of the digits, which is characteristic of an average strike 1916 at the middle circulated grades. Significant abrasions can hardly be found, aside from a brief, old scratch dangling from Liberty's outstretched hand, and a couple of minor ebony spots appear on the reverse. (PCGS# 005704)
Low Estimate: $6,000.00

468The Collectors' Auction - 2014 on 10/17/2014$6,750.00
1916 Type 1. PCGS Genuine (code 92, XF details/cleaned).
Steve Deckling Collection. XF details remain apparent despite the very dark olive-ebony toning that completely drapes both sides, and indeed, careful examination of the reverse finds tangible...
663The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$2,800.00
1916 Type 1 PCGS GD-6.
Presence of the bottom quarter of each digit in the date affirms the all-important 1916 date, which makes this quite a nice low-priced alternative to the many no-date examples in AG to G-4. Indeed,...
769The Midwest Summer Sale on 07/26/2013$9,100.00
1916 Type 1. PCGS AU-58.
B.B. Consignment. Cover up the grade printed on the PCGS slab insert, and I would wager that a majority of viewers would guess this to be an uncirculated 1916 quarter. The entire complement of mint...
770The Midwest Summer Sale on 07/26/2013$11,000.00
1916 Type 1. PCGS AU-58+.
Mile High Collection. Absolutely brand-spanking new to the condition census for the 1916 Standing Liberty quarter (non-full-head), this coin was plucked out of an album and shipped directly off to...
645The Midwest Summer Sale 2011 on 07/29/2011$4,100.00
1916 Type 1. F.
The top of each digit in the date is a little weak, but no magnification is required to improve legibility, as the date is still plenty strong enough to be read easily. The lower left quadrant of the...
646The Midwest Summer Sale 2011 on 07/29/2011$20,500.00
1916 Type 1. NGC MS-63 FH.
The age of "brilliant is best" seems to be in remission, which is a good thing for collectors who enjoy vintage coins that have journeyed through time with original surfaces and character intact. ...
404The Collectors' Auction 2010 on 10/15/2010$7,500.00
1916 Type 1. AU.
Without a doubt, the 1916 Standing Liberty quarter is one of the most intriguing issues in the U.S. series, as a number of factors contribute to its great popularity. Low mintage of only 52,000...
393The Midwest Winter Sale on 02/12/2010$6,750.00
1916 Type 1. PCGS Genuine.
PCGS Genuine-94 indicates "altered surfaces", yet it appears that this key has actually suffered an overly aggressive cleaning that has wiped out nearly any remnant of original luster. The barest...
337The Collectors' Auction 2009 on 10/16/2009$2,600.00
1916 Type 1. PCGS Genuine (VG details/reverse scrape).
Strictly original VG-10 details survived the ravages of time with little hindrance on the obverse, while the reverse is affected by a lengthy gash above the eagle's wings. The date -- most critical...
338The Collectors' Auction 2009 on 10/16/2009$1,500.00
1916 Type 1. PCGS AG-3.
A textbook case of "silent net-grading", since the details are obviously somewhat stronger than just AG, converging near the VG level. However, the date is practically worn away, leaving just a stub...
339The Collectors' Auction 2009 on 10/16/2009$2,000.00
1916 Type 1. Good.
G-4 is indicated on the included ANACS insert, yet despite substantial wear, the 1916 date can still be verified by looking at the bottom of the digits. Often in this grade, there is no date at all! ...
658The Midwest Summer Sale on 07/24/2009$6,500.00
1916 Type 1. VF/cleaned
Rather severely cleaned, nearly to the point of having been polished. Nonetheless, substantial detail remains on either side, and indeed, glimmers of original luster still persist around the edges of...
644The Midwest Winter Sale 2009 on 02/13/2009$11,250.00
1916 Type 1. PCGS AU-58.
Shrewd collectors have long known that a properly graded, attractive AU-58 is a bargain when compared to a low-end and unattractive MS-60, or even MS-62. Offered here is the key to the Standing...
455The Collectors' Auction 2008 on 10/17/2008$15,500.00
1916 Type 1. NGC MS-63.
Subdued mint luster penetrates a thin veneer of silvery patina that transforms into antique gold peripheral color on the reverse. Features are reasonably defined, though a "full head" designation is...
527The Midwest Summer Sale 2007 on 07/27/2007$8,750.00
1916 Type 1. PCGS XF-45.
The undisputed king of the popular Standing Liberty Quarter series, the 1916 is characterized by a diminutive mintage of only 52,000 total pieces. With such a low mintage figure, this issue has the...
528The Midwest Summer Sale 2007 on 07/27/2007$15,500.00
1916 Type 1. PCGS MS-63FH.
With by far the lowest mintage of the series, the 1916 Standing Liberty Quarter is without a doubt the most prestigious example of an "SLQ" that can be owned. Indeed, there are few quarters that can...
499The Midwest Winter Sale 2007 on 02/09/2007$8,500.00
1916 Type 1. PCGS VF-35.
The magnetism this date holds is quite intense. This notable year's unusual low mintage for twentieth century silver coinage is only eclipsed by the 1913-S Barber Quarter's production. This key...
1285The Midwest Summer Sale 2006 on 07/21/2006$8,250.00
1916 Type 1. XF-45.
With a diminutive mintage of 52,000, this particular dated quarter has the distinction of holding the second lowest issuance for all twentieth century silver coinage -- only the 1913-S Barber...
1286The Midwest Summer Sale 2006 on 07/21/2006$9,500.00
1916 Type 1. AU-53.
Designed by Hermon MacNeil, and one of only 52,000 struck this during this first year of issue. This visually appealing example has just a suggestion of wear, and any marks are almost invisible to...
1287The Midwest Summer Sale 2006 on 07/21/2006$10,750.00
1916 Type 1. AU-58 FH.
Phenomenal eye appeal is portrayed on this twentieth century prize issue. Copious, heirloom quality, pewter hues delicately grace its nearly flawless surfaces that are further enriched by an...
1288The Midwest Summer Sale 2006 on 07/21/2006$10,000.00
1916 Type 1. MS-60+.
An example of one of the most popular rarities struck in the twentieth century and one of only 52,000 struck for its first year of mintage. Herman MacNeil's design was a depiction of rousing...
