  • Description:

    With a much lower mintage, than the 1917 Type I produced by the Philadelphia Mint, the 1917-D Type I Standing Liberty Quarter is available in our inventory! Finding this numismatic gem in higher grades can be extremely difficult. The 1917-D Type I Standing Liberty Quarter has a mintage of just over 1.5 million and was minted by the Denver Mint. The 1917-D Type I Standing Liberty Quarter contains the first Lady Liberty design, before it was revised later on in the same year. The Type I varietals contains a bare chested Liberty, wherein the Type II contain a Liberty with chainmail covering her chest. Considered to being one of the newer mints, although it was established in 1906, the Denver Mint stands today as the lead coin producer in the world. Starting out as just a supplemental mint, helping the major sister mint branches with famous collections, the Denver Mint slowly gained respect with its strong strikes and competitively low mintages.

    The Standing Liberty Quarter came to be after the Barber series was discontinued. The Standing Liberty Quarter series wasn't received with as much excitement as its predecessor and only lasted for about 15 years. Hermon Atkins MacNeil was the sculptor chosen to design the new quarter and was asked to revise his design several times. At one point, the US Mint tried to sneak another revision, which MacNeil bitterly caught and demanded to be given another chance at the design. From 1917 on, MacNeil's revised design was used as the Standing Liberty Quarter. On the obverse, Lady Liberty stands with her head turned, almost as if she is keeping watch. Her garb summons the old warrior clothing, with chainmail on her breast plate and a round shield for protection. Liberty's other hand holds olive branches, which is the universal sign of peace. The date of mintage is etched into the area beneath her bare feet. The reverse displays a large eagle in flight, with wings outspread, and the coin's monetary value of a quarter dollar.
