Customer Reviews

Introduced in 1916, the beautiful 90% silver Standing Liberty quarter was designed by noted sculptor Hermon A. MacNeil. The obverse of the 1916 and early 1917 coins depicts Liberty standing in a gateway, wearing a gown but with her right breast exposed. Liberty was "covered up" partway through 1917, creating the Type 2 variety used until the end of the series in 1930. Three of the 13 stars on the reverse were moved below the eagle when the design was changed. The 1917-S Type 2 coins are prized by collectors.
