Condition or Grade

If your coin is worn, shows evidence of wear, it is considered a circulated coin. If your coin has no evidence of wear due to being in circulation, it is considered an uncirculated coin.

Mint Marks

Standing Liberty quarters were produced at three different mints: Philadelphia (no mint mark), Denver (D) and San Francisco (S). The mint mark is located on the obverse of the coin, near the bottom, just above and to the left of the date.

Type 1, 2, and 3 Standing Liberty Quarters

Approximately halfway through 1917, the obverse and the reverse design on the Standing Liberty quarter was changed.

On the obverse, Lady Liberty's bare breast was covered with a coat of chain mail. The reverse was changed from having seven stars on the left side of the eagle and six stars on the right side of the eagle to having five stars on each side of the eagle with three stars underneath the eagle. Looking at the reverse is the easiest way to tell Type 1 from Type 2. Beginning in 1925, the date was recessed below the rim so that the numerals are protected and less likely to wear away. The recessed date sub-type is known as Type 3.
