My favorite SLQ!



I love the series. I'll probably not ever be able to complete it -- it's very short but very expensive -- but I have most of the common holes filled in. I've been fascinated with these coins ever since I saw one in my dad's collection -- a dateless example -- when I was a kid.

Cline quite literally wrote the book on Standing Liberty quarters. I was fortunate to pick up this pristine copy (signed by Mr. Cline!) for under 10 bucks, making it cheaper than most of the quarters in the book!

Everybody's photos have made me realize that I'm going to have to bite the bullet and spend some money on some nice Standing Liberty quarters.
Long Beach is coming up in a couple of weeks and since I live only about 15 miles from there I guess I'll go and see what I can get. I hope I can find some specials that I can grab.


I usually go to at least 2 of the 3 LB shows every year. Standings from about 1918-1924 always seem to be in infuriatingly short supply there. Obviously these coins are in short supply normally, but you'd think the quantity and diversity of dealers at the LB show there would be more of them.

Good luck with your search!

Standing Liberty quarters are my favorite. I have a couple sets. Here are a pair of examples of about as full strikes as I have. It's hard to find strikes like these.




Here is a well struck one. PCGS 63FH




Another one PCGS 64FH



Here is a hard one or expensive anyway.

Some truly impressive coins posted here. I know I'll never be able to afford any like most of you have posted, but hopefully I'll be able to pick up some nice AU examples.

Although I agree that the design is beautiful, one thing that has never made sense to me is what it is she is standing in front of. Is it a wall of some kind? What wall is it and where did it come from?

I've read that Liberty is stepping through a gate in the wall in defense of peace as her ultimate goal. Her shield, which is a symbol of protection, is pointed in the direction of Europe (remember this was 1916, when World War I was going on, but before we entered the war in 1917). Her right hand is removing the sheath from her shield as a symbol of our willingness to defend ourselves.
I'm certainly not well read on the history of the SLQ, but that is just some of the information I've stumbled across .
Paralyse has the book on the quarter, and perhaps he can correct me if I'm wrong or add to what I've said.
Anyways, a fascinating look into the mindset of our country at a critical time in it's history, captured in a coin!

I love the SLQ and all of the examples displayed here. I used to be into Morgans and Washington quarters, but once I came across the SLQ design, it was all over. lol The detail and beauty of it lured me in. I hope to post some pics of mine when I get the chance. In the meantime, here's a question. Since the 1916 coin is out of reach of most people (even at the lowest grade) and many other dates/mint marks can be pricey at higher grades, does it deter you from collecting these in quantity? In other words, are you content with a few select pieces or do you try to complete this set as much as possible?

Personally, I like to get a few high-grade (MS) examples in common years just to display what the coin looks like in full detail. However, even if money wasn't an issue, I would have no desire to focus on this. It would bore me. Instead, I prefer to collect the middle grade pieces. Ones that are attractive because they show age, toning, contrast, etc. Even though a 1916 coin will probably never touch my hands (I can still dream), I think it's possible to complete the rest of this set with coins in very respectable grades. That's my goal, at least.

No need to apologize.
