Standing Liberty Quarters (1916 - 1930)

The Standing Liberty Quarter was designed by Hermon A. MacNeil in 1916 and his initial M appears to the right of the date. The first design portrayed Liberty with an exposed breast, which was redesigned in 1917. Instead of covering Liberty's breast with the same flowing material of the rest of her dress, the designer clothed her in a coat of chain mail. The left arm of Liberty uncovers a shield as symbol of protection. Her right hand bears an olive branch as symbol of peace. The reverse design was changed in 1917 also: the eagle was moved more to the center of the coin and three of the thirteen stars were placed beneath the eagle. Beginning in 1925, the dates on the coins were recessed, giving them more protection from wear. No Proof coins of this type were officially issued, but well-struck examples exist and they are the most sought out among collectors. Much attention is focused on Liberty's head for the so-called "Full Head" examples with complete details of hair and leaves above ear and full facial features. These quarters bring considerable premiums over poorly struck examples. Collectors also focus their attention on the rivets on the shield. Any coin with a Full Head and full rivets is a true prize. Mintmarks of this type ("D" for Denver or "S" for San Francisco) appear on the obverse just to the left of and above the date.
