David Hall: The 1917-D Type 2 is a scarce semi-key date. It's one of the rarer Standing Liberty quarters in cirulated grades. Mint state examples are very scarce, and Gems are rare. Strike can sometimes be a problem and full head Gems are difficult to find. For mint state coins, luster is usually good, and coins can be white and frosty or toned in various degrees.
