||1917 25C Type One MS67+ Full Head NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The 1917 Type One Standing Liberty quarter saw a mintage exceeding 8 million pieces, making it a reasonably available issue in Mint State and a favorite choice of type collectors. The 1917 Type One was also a well-produced issue, and J.H. Cline (2007) states: "This date ... is probably the best overall strike of the entire series and the most available with Full Heads." This high-end Superb Gem certainly fulfills Cline's expectations, with crisp detail on the design elements and full definition on Liberty's head. The peripheries exhibit attractive reddish-gold and golden-brown patina, with more color on the obverse. The lustrous surfaces are impeccably preserved and eye appeal is terrific. Census: 67 in 67 (3 in 67+, 3 in 67 S) Full Head, 0 finer (10/13). Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $2.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
