Standing Liberty Quarters were issued from 1916 to 1930. The original design had Ms. Liberty with an exposed breast.
The popular belief is that the Standing Liberty Quarter was redesigned in mid-1917 to properly cloth the proud lady due to public outrage. It is more likely that the addition of “chain mail” to cover her breast was to signify our entry into World War I.
Standing Liberty Quarters were minted in Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco.
The 'key' to the series with a mintage of only 52,000. This is a very attractive example with a light amber hue resting upon satiny surfaces. A touch of green and gold tint guard the upper periphery on the obverse. The strike is solid and there are no significant marks. Quite pleasing and desirable.
CAC. A beautiful example of this classic mint rarity. Flowing white luster blends with light champagne tint and radiates across satiny surfaces. The strike is very sharp and the eye appeal is outstanding. The mintage was only a mere 52,000 pieces.
Well struck with flashy golden-white luster and a trace of reverse toning.
Sharply struck with lustrous mostly white surfaces that have a touch of gold toning.
An extremely nice example of this better date with vibrant satiny white luster and a sharp strike. The head detail is remarkably sharp and the surfaces are devoid of noteworthy marks and just beautiful!
A well above average strike for this better date with 3/4 head detail. The surfaces are attractive and nearly mark-free with vibrant luster and soft peach and gold iridescence.
CAC. Very clean champagne-white surfaces and nearly mint state. A scarce date in a very desirable grade.

Attractive violet-gold shades rest upon lustrous and nearly mint state surfaces. The look is clean and the strike is very sharp.
Satiny silver-white surfaces exhibit a touch of gold and a sharp strike. A better date that is known for worn dies and poor strikes. A very elusive issue with a 'full head' designation.

Problem-free battleship gray surfaces.
Lustrous white surfaces that exhibit a few light touches of gold, a clean look, and a sharp strike. The eye appeal is strong on this 'key' date.
Cream-white lustrous surfaces and a strong strike with just a touch of wear.
A pleasing example of this scarce date with bright lustrous surfaces and a well above average strike.
Rich lavender-gray surfaces that are very well struck. Only light 'rub' prevents a mint state designation. A scarce date in all grades and very desirable.
