1917 STANDING LIBERTY QUARTER, TYPE II – 2 TROY OUNCE – 39MM
In 1917, the Standing Liberty Quarter featured two distinct design types. The type I features Miss Liberty’s exposed right breast and flying eagle on the reverse hovering over an empty sky. The type II shows Miss Liberty’s upper frontal body covered in a chain mail and the reverse eagle flying over three stars. 1917 Standing Liberty quarters are popular with collectors for several reasons. Namely, the occurrence of two types creates interest among coin collectors, both dedicated to the series and United States coins at large.
