A Guide Book of Mercury Dimes, Standing Liberty Quarters, and Liberty Walking Half Dollars: 1916-1947: A Complete History and Price Guide
Bowers presents a comprehensive guide to collecting, rating, and identifying Mercury dimes, Standing Liberty quarters, and Liberty Walking half dollars.
Coin collectors seeking specific guides will welcome over three hundred pages of pricing, grading directions, history and collector insights to the mercury dime, standing liberty
quarter and liberty walking half dollars, which were minted between 1916 and 1947 and can be found in many old-time collections.
Old coins such as the Indian Head cent (1858-1909); the V nickel (1883-1913), featuring a large Roman numeral V on its reverse side to delineate the denomination; and the Standing Liberty
quarter (1916-1930), with its stationary Lady Liberty, still turned up during the war in handfuls of change.
I found at least one coin in our garden each of the next six planting seasons, including three Liberty Head nickels (1898, 1900, 1902), a Standing Liberty
quarter (1903), a few more Indian Head pennies, and several others.
With the demise of the last standing Liberty
Tree--a massive tulip-poplar in Maryland--AMERICAN FORESTS has undertaken a new campaign based on an old idea.
The Buffalo nickel, 1913-1938; Mercury dime, 1916-1945; Standing Liberty
quarter, 1916-1930; Walking Liberty half dollar, 1916-1947; and Peace dollar, 1921-1935, all belong to a unique era.
The sale contained exceptional coins from collections like the Battle Born Collection, the Hoosier Flyer Collection, the Dorchester Heights Collection, the Philip Winston Pillsbury Collection of Flying Eagle and Indian Cents, the Just Having Fun Collection of Standing Liberty
Quarters, the Werner Family Collection of 1796 Coinage, the Winecrest Collection, and more.
This nicely illustrated compendium with more than 200 high resolution images covers all the Standing Liberty
quarters issues from 1916 to 1930.
But certainly the highlight of this session was for lot 747, the very rare 1918-S 8 over 7 Standing Liberty
Quarter, which had active interest in the room and on the phones before hammering down for $82,800.
We gave away Indian cents, Liberty & Buffalo nickels, Barber and Mercury dimes, Barber and Standing Liberty
quarters, Barber and Walking Liberty halves, and Morgan & Peace dollars, along with an explanation of different coin designs.
