The 1917 Standing Liberty quarter is one of the classic type coin issues of the 20th century. The type design was only minted in two years, 1916 and 1917. The design was very beautiful, one of the most striking of any U.S. coin. However, Ms. Liberty's right breast was fully exposed and this caused quite an uproar at the time. In fact, the "Society for the Suppression of Vice" not only began to pressure the Treasury to stop minting this "immoral" coin, they also wanted the government to recall all the coins already in circulation. The Type I design was stopped midway through the year. The new design featured the upper torso of Ms. Liberty covered by medieval chain mail. I meet at the Food Lion in Randleman, NC if interested. #coins
