    Recently Made a trade for this ANACS certified 1916 standing lib quarter, and wanted to show it off. I have owned many dateless examples, so it is nice to have one that is a bit more clear on the date. Maybe someday I will upgrade to a VF, but I really like the look of this one for now.

    Very nice coin!! Did ANACS give it a grade, or just certify it as genuine? I am correct that it should at least be a G-4 with most of the date legible?

    Thanks. ANACS graded it VG8 which is correct imo given the bottom loop of the 6 is full. G4s generally only have the very bottom outlines of 1 or 2 digits visible.

    Cazkaboom One for all, all for me.

    Question for the noob, Is that Morse Code inside the rim of the obverse?

    Great coin! One of the keys I've been chasing for a while. Nice pickup.

    Thanks for the comments. Yeah, I don't think I will ever be able to afford an MS-64 either. I had to trade an arm and a leg to get this

    That is a great looking one if you ask me.
    Lots of life left in it. And just part of the date worn.
    Great pick up.
    What did you have to trade? A porsche? eheheh

    I traded an ANACS G-4 1916 slq, a bunch of midrange type coins including a type 2 gold dollar along with a few buffalo nickels, and $962.

    Thanks for posting that Treashunt! That one is yours, right? I thought I remembered reading that you owned one on a thread I read several years ago. Neat coin! You should post some closeups!

    Sweet looking quarter. The reverse still looks very clear.
