Many numismatists hailed Hermon A. MacNeil's classically inspired Standing Liberty silver quarter design as one of the finest ever seen. Some, however, were outraged because Liberty's right breast was exposed. In response, the mint altered the design partway through 1917 by covering up Liberty in chain mail!
These extremely popular 2-coin sets contain the much sought-after "scandalous" 1917 Type 1 Standing Liberty quarter, plus the more modest Type 2 version (1925-1930, date our choice). This unique coin set is such a numismatic classic, even collectors not specializing in quarters want them for their own collections! Quantities are very limited, so please order early for best selection!
