  • Description:

    Until 1925, the Standing Liberty was weakly struck, causing the coin's date to wear off without difficulty. The issue was finally fixed in 1925, but many circulated quarters still have weak dates, even if they have a higher grade. The 1930-S Standing Liberty Quarter is the final year for the series and is in very good condition. Having a mintage of over 1.5 million, the 1930-S Standing Liberty Quarter is very worn, with a date that is slightly readable. On the reverse, a flying eagle is depicted, along with the coin's monetary value. The obverse displays a warrior-like Lady Liberty, guarding herself with a shield. The coin's date of mintage is also etched into the obverse. Minted by the San Francisco Mint, the 1930-S Standing Liberty Quarter carries the "S" mint-mark.

    When the Barber series' rule was run, the US Mint greatly desired to come up with a more originally designed coin. The Mint Director at the time, Robert Woolley, asked sculptor Hermon Atkins MacNeil, to design the new Standing Liberty Quarter. At first, MacNeil designed a very militaristic portrait of Liberty but was turned down. He then added dolphins to represent the the famous oceans but the US Mint went behind his back to make more alterations. In 1917, MacNeil designed the final Standing Liberty Quarter, which was minted until 1930.
