What do you think, Full Head?...

5 posts in this topic

I found the 1916 in FH I had been waiting for.


After a long wait I found a full head 1916 Liberty Standing Quarter with original surfaces and a great strike. What do you all think? The 1916 FH is always much softer than the 1917 FH. In my opinion the 1916 is not really a "type one" to be grouped with the 1917's. It has a completely different master hub. Look at the stars on the gateway or the letters on the obverse and on "United States of America" on the reverse. The stars have a softer edge on the 16 and the letters of the both the obverse and reverse are more rounded on the 1916 compared to the 1917.

I can only dream about owning a FH MS 1916--very nice.


It is also very evident in the drapery folds under the right hand as well as the shape of the "shield on the shield" as the 1916 looks more like an acorn shape and the 1917 is more attractively elongated.
