    Re: quarter date

    can you show a picture of the back? No stars under the eagle = varity 1. Stars under the eagle = varity 2.

    The differences are subtle, but looks like 1917 to me.

    Bumping this back up to get more responses. The curl looks '17 like, but the hair looks '16 like.
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.
