Teletrade, the largest Internet auction company for certified coins and currency, wrapped up the Santa Clara Coin, Stamp and Collectibles Expo with the successful sale of 2,700 lots that realized $1,072,219.

1916 Standing Liberty Quarter

This 1916 Standing Liberty Quarter, verified VF30 by PCGS, realized $8,510. This first year of issue is a classic design by Herbert Akins Macneil, very much a departure from the rather staid and masculine designs for the Barber Quarters, which the standing liberty design replaced. Only 52,000 pieces were struck and most reached circulation.

The Nov. 19-21 event marks Teletrade’s fifth consecutive show as Official Online Auctioneer.

"With lots ranging from several dollars to thousands of dollars, our auction offered something for every coin collector," said Brian Kendrella, vice president of Teletrade.

"A noteworthy highlight of the sale is the 1916 Standing Liberty Quarter, lot 2417, which was sold for $8,510. Verified VF30 by PCGS, this is one of the truly elegant short-lived design types to come out of the U.S. Mint."
