Was This Coin Design Changed By Prudes?

That was no lady, that was Liberty herself!


You may not be old enough to have ever seen a Standing Liberty Quarter. Even if you are my age or older, you may never have noticed that Lady Liberty was standing bare chested on some of them. That design only was made in 1916 and part of 1917. It’s a pretty coin.
