The Outrageous Story of America’s Most Scandalous Coin!
When the first Standing Liberty silver quarters were released to the public in January 1917, they were condemned as “obscene” and “immoral” because of Liberty’s exposed breast…and the coin became the most scandalous in American history. The design was quickly changed to cover Liberty’s chest with a chain-mail shirt – which was perceived as being suggestive of war and created a new scandal for the U.S. Mint in 1917!

This extraordinary set features both the original 1917 “exposed breast” Standing Liberty quarter and the 1917 “chain mail” Standing Liberty quarter. Both coins are presented in very fine circulated condition to ensure that the essential design details are visible, allowing you to appreciate how the design was changed…and how the notorious scandal moved from one coin to the next. Each coin is housed in a crystal-clear case so that you can examine both sides while protecting it from dust, dirt or fingerprints. You will also receive – at no additional charge – a custom-crafted wooden chest that displays both coins and features an expertly written narrative of “America’s most scandalous coin.”
