Now own a set of last-year 1930 Standing Liberty quarters from the only U.S. Mints that struck them that year – Philadelphia & San Francisco! Not only are these 90% silver coins from the shortest quarter series of the 20th century, but they're also the last with a classic liberty design. Plus in 1925, the mint recessed the date to prevent wear, so these are that final variety.
When first struck in 1916, the new 25¢ piece was well received, then certain groups noticed Liberty's breast was exposed, and even in this new era, such a "liberal" coin was going too far. So partway through 1917, Liberty was covered with chain mail – a look that lasted for the rest of this series' short 14 years. Add the last-year 1930 and lower mintage 1930-S Standing Liberty quarters – hand selected for eye appeal – to your collection right away!
