The original Standing Liberty quarter caused an uproar when unveiled in America's Innocent Age. Guardians of public modesty expressed outrage that a U.S. coin would depict a woman with an exposed breast and thigh. Meanwhile, the U.S. entered World War I and a revised issue covered up Miss Liberty in chain-mail. This original topless type has remained a great favorite of collectors. Very Fine.
