Standing Liberty Silver Quarter Lots
The Standing Liberty Quarter was produced by the U.S. Mint from 1916-1930. Designed by Hermon A. MacNeil, the initial design featured Liberty on the obverse carrying an upraised shield in her left hand and an olive branch in her right. Most notably, this coin was the only circulating coin to feature Liberty with a bare breast. The reverse of the coin features an American eagle in flight.
In 1917, a Type II coin was issued with several design changes, most notably covering Liberty’s chest with chain mail. The eagle on the reverse of the coin was moved more to the center, while three of the thirteen stars that used to be on the sides of the reverse are now placed beneath the majestic bird.
In 1925 there was another design change. On 1924 and earlier years, the date was the highest point on the obverse causing the date to wear out after only a few years in circulation. In 1925 the date was lowered solving the problem.
