    Hogge is right!!! You SLQ can only be a 1916 or 1917 variety 1. You're really hoping for a 1916....it's worth a bunch. Your SLQ has seen better days, but it's a keeper, no doubt!!

    Here's the article that tells you how to tell if it is 1916 or 1917... btw, I think it is a 1916.

    For some reason this link is not working... take out the word SPACE and copy and paste the two parts into your browser...

    If you're wondering how we know it's definitely a 1916 or 1917 Variety 1, it's because there are no stars below the eagle on the reverse. Later SLQ's had 3 stars below the eagle.
    You want it to be the 1916.
    Why? Because the 1916 is a rare coin-only 52,00 were minted.
    Why? Because the right breast of Liberty was exposed, evoking howls of protest from the prudish. The mint quickly caved to the pressure and redesigned the coin so that the breast was covered by drapery.
    The 1916 is worth several thousand dollars, even in the lower Good or Fine grades .Since your coin does not have a legible date, it would probably not qualify as Good. More likely it would be considered About Good grade. But it still might be worth several hundred dollars, at least.
    So look carefully at the figure of Liberty and see if you can detect boobage

    ..............just to clarify and correct, a bare breast DOES NOT mean it is definitely a 1916, it could just as easily (and more probably) be a 1917 Type 1.

    In mid-1917, after public outcry, they covered the breast and re-worked the reverse (which we call Type 2) which included the addition of 3 stars below the eagle.

    Still a nice find and keep digging, sidewalks don't stay dug up forever........

    HH all!

    Definitely a 16 or 17; I'd be surprised to find a nipple, given that the date's gone! Nipple or no, it's still a great find!

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

    From the condition of the coin, my suggestion probably won't hurt the value much, as the date is completely gone.

    To raise the date on worn out Buffalo nickels, use a small drop of ferric chloride (Radio Shack circuit board etchant) on the area of the date. Because the date was stamped quite hard with the dies, the raised date will resist the etching solution more so than the surrounding area, and after about a minute, you can see what the date is.

    As for silver, you need to use a more aggressive etching solution. The only thing that I've found that works is Nitric acid. You can dilute it to around 30 % with distilled water. Be sure to add the acid to the water, NOT water to the acid! If you do, the acid will cause the water to 'explode' and you'll have an unwelcome spray of acid all over your clothes, or WORSE!. Use goggles and rubber gloves, and the usual common sense precautions.

    This will at least let you know without a doubt what the date was.
