    Re: PLEASE HELP ME FIGURE OUT A DATE FOR THIS STANDING LIBERTY QUARTER

    Here's a pic of a whole dateless SLQ I found this weekend. Below it is the date area after treating with the Nitric acid. It's faint, but enough to tell me this is a 1918S date.

    Nice find!!

    The drape at the bottom left, to me, seems to indicate a 1917 type 1. I found a similar dateless SLQ (a bit more worn than yours) and wanted it so badly to be a 1916 but I am prone to believe it is just a 1917.

    Still, it's best to have it checked by a professional to be certain as pictures don't always tell the full story.

    Again, congrats on a very good coin.

    Here is my two cents worth.. (Although I'm not an expert by any means, just having done some research last winter) I did a side-by-side comparison your coin to 1916 Type 1 and a 1917 Type 1. One feature of the 1916 versus the `17 is that on the `16, Lady Liberty's head breaks up the border around the coin of small dots and the top of her head somewhat higher than the "E" in "Liberty" ( the 1917's top of her head lines up with the top of the "E"). Although it could be a product of the wear your coin has sustained, the top of her head appears to be higher than the "E". As others have said, take it to a professional - a dealer whom you trust. If it is the real deal, he'll be even more excited than you!! The mintage for the 1916 and 1917 T-1 are as follows:
    1916 52,000
    1917 8,792,000
    1917D 1,509,000
    1917S 1,952,000

    If it's a `16 it would be a truly rare find, indeed!!!
    Don't let the truth get in the way of a good story.

    Based on this web site it is identified as a 1917 Type I. Look at the gown on Liberty's right leg, a "wide "J"", bottom of the gown touches the "date pad" and the gown is off the ankle. Never the less a superior find.
