According to numismatic folklore, the obverse engraving of the Standing Liberty quarter caused an uproar when first unveiled in America's Innocent Age. Guardians of public modesty expressed outrage that a United States coin would dare depict a woman with an exposed breast and thigh. Hermon A. MacNeil would modify his original design and cover up the scantily clad Miss Liberty in chain-mail, which happened to coincide with America's inevitable entry into World War I. This topless type has remained a great favorite of collectors since it was first issued more than a century ago. Nicely detailed Very Fine quality.
