1927-S Standing Liberty Quarter

The 1927-S Standing Liberty Quarter (Buy on eBay) has the second lowest mintage of series and represents a significant conditional rarity. Just 396,000 pieces were produced and released for circulation. Notably, only an incredibly small number of these pieces survive which qualify for the Full Head designation.

It has been estimated that only 1% of the entire mintage likely exhibited a Full Head when struck. This amount would have been significantly reduced by the effects of circulation, leaving an extremely small number of uncirculated specimens which would meet the criteria for the designation. The major grading services have certified less than three dozen pieces as Full Head, with very few at the gem level or higher. One of the finest known examples graded PCGS MS66FH sold for $258,500 in 2014.
