When first issued in 1916, the Standing Liberty quarter caused a public furor due to Libery's exposed right breast. Part way though 1917, a tunic of chain mail was added to make Liberty more modest. Hermon A. MacNeil won a competition for this coin's design. The obverse features Liberty standing at the portals of our nation. Her outstretched right hand holds on olive branch of peace; the left, an upraised shield of defense with drapery falling away from it. The quarter's composition is 90% silver and 10% copper. There were no Proof coins of this type ever officially issued.
