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.
