Standing Liberty Quarter Values
The Standing Liberty Quarter was minted by the United States government from 1916 to 1930. It is composed of 90% silver and 10% copper. There are two design types: Type I (1916–1917) and Type II (1917–1930) The most significant changes in design being the covering Liberty's bare chest in Type I with chain mail in Type II and the addition of three stars on the reverse under the eagle. Early coins in this series had a raised date which was subject to excessive wear. Good, readable dates can be extremely hard to find even in quarters with high grades. The date design was changed in 1925 and later coins with good dates are much easier to find.
