beautiful, back when i wass a full time dealer (1978-1983 when i was 13, lol sold 2 of these to bowers and ruddy galleries for 90,00 ea, lol wish i hadem both today fer sure!!
I love SLQs and those are some beautiful quarters, I'm still musing on grades - MS63 and better I think. I'll guess the 1916 and the 18/17-S overdate are missing pieces, and the toughest one to find in a grade you could afford? Probably that pretty 1921 or the 1923-S - those are among the finest I've seen. I had a heck of a time with some of the others too - the 1919-D and S for example. I also have an SLQ set that we've been improving for some years - starting out with raw low grade coins in a Blue Whitman folder and growing from there, though I'm not sure how the PCGS registry works, ours are currently in PCGS, NGC, ANACS and ICG slabs, and many are AU or MS now, but our 1916 is FR02 Details, Damaged, we don't have the 18/17-S overdate and in the sub-VF or Details category, I still haven't been able to upgrade the 1919-D (F12), the 1927-S and 1927-D (F12s) and the 1923-S is a Details VF30. Our nicest is a 1929 MS63 FH (we have 3 Full Head SLQs - 1929, 1925 and type 2 1917-D. Today I finally upgraded our 1917-S, type 2 from a VG10 to an XF45, though I don't have the coin in hand yet. Most of the ones in ICG slabs were purchased raw and submitted by me on the CoinTalk special. I also include a Hermon McNeil Pattern Design Medal of the 1916 in the collection for a total of 38 pieces - 2 too many to fit in one Lighthouse album. So how does the PCGS registry work? Here's current pictures of our lovelies!
The 21 and 19-D are graded and I won't crack them out.
a couple of random quarters, not especially special but to post some pics:
Thanks for showing us your quarters which makes me want to put the SLQs on my top burner to collect.
