Wardrobe Malfunction Exposes Miss Liberty!

When the 1917 Standing Liberty Quarter was released, the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice was aghast at the “immorality” of the coin. You see, in classic style, one of Miss Liberty’s breasts was exposed! The guardians of prudery exerted political pressure and the coin was quickly changed, covering up the shocking appendage. As a result, these 1917 quarters are scarce and desirable today. Luckily, you can get one without fear of reprisal—the Society for the Suppression of Vice is kaput! Each is in Extremely Fine (XF) condition showing “much detail”
