  • Description:

    The 1917-S Type I Standing Liberty Quarter has a low mintage of only 1.9 million. The Type I features a bare breasted Lady Liberty, wherein due to complaints of too much exposure, causing the Type II to exhibit chainmail on Lady Liberty's breasts. The 1917-S Type I Standing Liberty Quarter is in very fine condition, exhibiting amounts of wear on the entire coin. The 1917-S Type I was struck before the die revision in 1925 so its date is a lot less readable, if at all . All quarters minted before 1925 are said to have been weakly struck, causing the date to wear without too much trouble. Any quarter, in any condition, that was minted before 1925 may have a more worn date than the actual coin itself.

    Being the second oldest mint in the US, the San Francisco Mint still participates in popular coin collections today. When it was first established in 1854, the San Francisco Mint was solely used to help turn mined gold into coins for currency. This gave the miners a chance to make money off of their hard earned gold. Once the gold rush calmed, the San Francisco Mint only grew larger and more lucrative. Marking their coins with a "S," the San Francisco Mint is best known for its strong strikes on coins and competitively low mintages.
